Muralist Working at the Library – May 2023

Muralist Working at the Library 

by Diane Lockspeiser

So quiet.

Too quiet.

Just the hum of the computer,

Occasional passing traffic.

On Easter weekend the sun shines brightly

But branches are still bare.

In the chair behind the desk

I lean back

And start to doze.

Dreaming of Rudbeckia,

A Goldfinch,

Cowvetch and Wild Basil.

Dreams of painting summer

On the bathroom wall.~
