Steve Thomas Cleveland, OH Poet

cherish

its the morning quiet
when sparrows chirp

while tasting the early morning dew
that sing’s the world’s welcome

before the motors start
the door slams
radio screeches
the news the news

and the experts spew reason
and reasons of fear and mistrust
as all the work creaks
and jars each step upon concrete

it’s the morning quiet
when doves coo
the sun just peaking
above the low earth

Steve Thomas lives in Cleveland and has been published by little mags in the very small press.
