Apartment On The Third Floor
by Peter Menkin www.petermenkin.com

Hot, heat, hot
they tell me.
The man who
lived here before
says hawks live
in the trees.
Friends.
This apartment,
top, third floor
one among
hawks who build
nests,
has sun.

This room gets
afternoon light;
morning, too, streams
in creating
simplicity.

The hawks
sit in the
trees, communing.
The world
goes on, in steel
complexity.

Warm, here
just roof above,
and
among
the trees in
company of hawks
who nest. One hawk
sits
on a branch,
lit by engaging
moments of
sun; spring
newness amid
the gray manmade
world that impedes
yet connects
the eternal life.

Pray.

Thank you
morning through
daylight to night,
bright stars
for a promise
of goodness.
God.

Witnessing
the light.
I remark
to you of
divine moments.

We enter mansions
heavenly, just flesh
and spirit.
Ascending.

Friends.
