A poem a day for 2013 - day 163 - poem 2 - This now

In this moment
Sitting in my car
Windows down
Easy gray day
My favorite days
Birds singing
One man
Only one man walking on this quiet street
Slow gait
Tree branches hanging low
One car
Only one car passes slowly by
Trash cans lined near the curbs
Beware of dog signs
I see no dogs
Just signs
Another van
More birds
Finally I see and hear dogs
Dogs to beware 
Airplane above
Inglewood, California
A bus driver died today
This morning
Bus collided with tow truck
I tried to keep death and sadness out of this poem
But death is real life too
Sadness is the moment too
So is happy
So is simple
So is just is
How can they exist together
I wonder
But they do
They just do
