Arrival

hot and sunny
the floorboards are toasty under my bare feet
and dark glasses are needed
to cut the glare

a tall swan plant is covered
in monarch butterflies

Welcome Swallows flip and flit
to and fro across the deck and lawn
eddying in the updrafts

the movers unload boxes and other items
quietly passing to and fro

lunch sandwiches are made with pocket knife
and cut on bubble wrap
served on cardboard

all necessary tools are still somewhere on the truck

the view is stunningly beautiful

our new home vista
