What Did I Do Wrong?

My day comes to a quiet finish, but something nags me. I didn't burn the pot roast; I didn't forget to separate the darks from the whites in the laundry; I didn't forget to pay the phone bill; I paid my dental bill, and did my physical therapy routines before going to the soup kitchen to serve Sloppy Joes; I even phoned my sister to apologize for speaking sarcastically to her. All this, and yet.

sunshine fades
behind thunderheads
a hawk hovers
