Have They Lost Their Place?

Patches of sunshine
Always occupy my lawn
These early June days.

Outside my window
Loud sounds of a bird chirping
Larger than the bird.

New dandelions
Bloom near downed lilac petals--
Comings and goings.

Each in their own door
Collette and Olivia
Stare nonchalantly.

It's almost gone now--
Green petals take over the stream.
But its sound remains.

Congregate by the steel fence--
Yellow, white and gray.

These dead brown leaves lie
Mid the roadside greenery.
Have they lost their place?

Stepping into shade
The roadside heat disappears
(Just for a few steps.)
