art for a snowy day

     These are tennis courts near our house.   Here is a poem and a painting:  


As fleeting as the after burn on the back of my eyelids
just before sleep,

I see a gray mouse sweep across the rainy street
like a windblown leaf to hide
under a car stopped at a light.

Something so tender, so unseen.

Where is that acorn?

Thanks! I actually saw a squirrel find an acorn he had buried in my garden a month or so ago. That was a first!
