It’s odd having painters on the other side
of closed balcony door and windows.
With the apartment sliding glass door and
windows wrapped in plastic I feel cocooned.
There’s no plastic covering my front door,
and I emerge to errands. I return to change–
the plastic is down, the painting is done.
I’m rapt with late afternoon thunder
and rain, and the heat has broken–finally.

“Change” is my August 8, 2012 poem for the postcard poetry project. I used an antique card titled “Mount Rainier and Daffodil Fields, Washington.” I mailed it to Denise in Bay City, Michigan.
Blessings to Denise and all, Andy
