A Moment Before Driving to Work

A Moment Before Driving to Work

written by: Tracee Clapper


Summer holds tight
in a final bid
to remain in season.

She sends heat,
sifting over my face
as I open the front door.

Grabbing binoculars,
I scan dawn light,
looking for birds.

High in the blue,
white-tip winged vultures
circle puffed popcorn clouds,

sun dapples pale-bellied kites
soaring above lush,
summer green tree lines.

I climb into my baking car,
blast the a/c and the radio
and head to an indoor job.
