Two Tankas and a Realization

Two mornings running
Now I’ve heard the geese calling
Fleeing to the south
Dragging winter in their wake
Promising peace and quiet

Montreal morning
In a rainy back alley
The last time you felt
Will feel anything at all
For us the falling rain—cold

“This evening will be rainy.
The rain will be heavy.”
My cellphone’s weather app
Writes better poetry
Than I do.
