summer drought—

a can of worms

left on the dock

boarded-up cabin—

goose tracks

across the wet porch

in the wine glass

pink bus

on the cherry

beginning to show

not so cold

when you take my hand

the seaside cave

prairie sky—

the sudden spray

from a peeled mandarin

first winter storm—

the weathervane

points north
