Dove and the young man

Removing the cracked
concretes on my driveway, he
mocks the cooing dove,
do do doo, do do doo.
Might he think:
what will I do tomorrow?
This isn’t what I should do
on the weekend,
while my friends fishing,
hiking with their girl friends.
He kicks the concrete piece then
hums. I almost hear him singing:
I work at the bottom
today, I may do the same thing
tomorrow but at the top,
a contracter, encouraging
the young men like me,
‘you are building for
tomorrow formidable
as concrete.’
Dove recites the words
as the young man hums.

  2. Thank you so much for like. I’ve written books but have no patience to deal with agents and publishers. Prefer to be an independent author, publishing books on Amazon as many other talented ones do. 🙂

  4. Thanks for the suggestion on your next book. I’m working on a new book now. So I don’t have time to collaborate for your next book. I’ve already published several books with Amazon. But I want to rewrite or edit the books, except INFINITE DELUGE that is published recently. 🙂
