Entering the bar, Jake hummed “Dancing in the Dark”, not the Bruce Springsteen version but the Cole Porter classic. Approaching the dance floor his song became louder. Looking for a dance partner, and finding none, Jake swayed alone, remembering his late wife and their last dance there.

The crowd stopped, the band hesitated and then the older members started playing the song.


Season Change

Cloudy morning, weather watch

Sun late rising, autumn has dropped

A frugal brightness seen today

Hazy fire smoke on display

Soccer fields have a few puddles

The rain is brief causing huddles

Dark hued leaves drip from the shower

While pine cones are worn paths’ bower.
