Monday Poem - (a Poem a Day for Lent)

Love the simplicity, and complexity of this poem.  I highly recommend a visit to Poets.org if you haven't already been.


Thinking of Work  
by James Shea

A brief storm
blew the earth clean.

There was much 
to do: sun to put up,
clouds to put out,
blue to install,
limbs to remove,
grass to implant.

(The grass failed.
We ordered new grass.)

A limb had cracked
in half in the short storm,
short with its feeling.

We saw its innards,
all the hollow places.

Something flew out of
the window and then
the window flew out of the window.
