Autumn 2023

 

heron rookery—

on our silent walk

you reach for my hand

 

 

Summer 2023

 

September sun—

the ref ties

the goalie’s shoe

 

 

Spring 2023

 

power failure—

my kids don't know

how to brush their teeth

 

 

Spring 2022

 

passing water skier . . .

the white egret

lifts with the wave

 

 

Summer 2022

 

the eyrie above me

sways in the wind—

forest fire moon

 

jiggering chrysalis—

sunlight, now

to the base of the bush

 

 

Spring 2022

 

passing water skier . . .

the white egret

lifts with the wave

 

 

Autumn 2021

 

swirling snow—

the sign says “sorry”

on the soup kitchen door

 

 

Summer 2021

 

midnight temblor—

the tiny lampchain

ticks against the lamp

 

 

Spring 2021

 

a day with rain—

coffeeshop cobblestones

thicker with moss

 

 

Summer 2020

 

finding them by touch

under the paisley couch . . .

newborn kittens

 

the scent of cedar

on a rusting chisel—

waning moon

 

 

Spring 2018

 

in the breeze

of an ambulance

a nodding iris

 


from here to the mountain       wildflowers

 


the shadow in a honeycomb where the bee backed out
