From A Porch I See

Some unsettling news:

man loses his head 
to a sword;  with help 
airplane falls from sky;  
gulf shore waters yet 
reel from five-year-old 
oil spill;  house fire kills
family of four.

All the while, all round:

tied to fan whirring 
high above my head
chimes sing; as dove roosts 
in the ligustrum 
robin is nesting 
in the camellia;
on the porch I sit 

making a poem.
