Nothing Happened

by Joe Nasta 5 months ago in nature poetry

when I looked at the sunrise I only felt yellow inside

Nothing Happened

He took photographs of dawn.

I only take pictures of fog.

What were you think-

Ing, no pictures

Or

//

When the day began yellow

Flowers & the petals

Dropped. What

Were you

Think-

//

& the petals dropped op-

En. What were you

Thinking, no pic-

Tures, or

No

//

Yellow flowers. Photographs

Of dawn & the fog.

No pictures or

Nobody

Look-

//

When the day began yellow

We did not take pictures.

Nobody was looking

At us, dropping

Op-

//

We stood on the hill silently.

No pictures. The sun

Rose & it ended.

That was

All.

//

You were not thinking.

You were not think-

Ing. You were

Not think-

Ing.

//

Nothing Happened. I stood

On the hill silent & alone.

Nobody looking.

It ended op-

Ening.
