The Beginning of Each End

THE BEGINNING OF EACH END

sun is setting
its last rays shining
over my left shoulder

cross-legged I sit
atop a field of blue, yellow and green flowers
soft balls of fur on either side

it is not pen and paper, I use
just my laptop
sleek in its silver shininess

the only sound
my computer as it whirs
my cats as they purr

so often
it is through tears I type
water on the nightstand, a must

this is where I start
each night, the same
right here, write now

it’s the ending
that is always
different
