Black Dotted Houses

Black dotted houses
denoting trash day
Aesthetically speaking
take beauty away

But it’s only gone
for a very short time
Mundaneness of life
portrays the sublime

That beauty is fleeting
it comes and it goes
Like waves of a life
being tossed to and fro

And things are not always
as they appear
Something now gone
could tomorrow be here

That nothing is hopeless
and things turn around
That problems resolve
and joy is re-found
