Two on spring

freshly mown —

a whiff

of wild onion

 

stones in the road

their shadows

blacker than asphalt

Winter thaw

winter thaw . . .

that patch of snow

the sun can’t reach

Two toddlers

two toddlers in the field . . .

he gives his sister

a flower

Two on spring

young pear tree —

just old enough

to blossom

 

one after another

the water lilies

opening

Three on winter

dug in

against the wind:

fence posts

 

feeling quiet . . .

raindrops

and the sound of raindrops

 

ladling soup

and steam . . .

this sunbeam

Two on summer

first one

and then another —

cicadas

 

dutch door —

the dog noses open

the bottom half

Two on spring

snagged on branches

a tuft of cloud

pulled by the wind

 

spicing the breeze

with its call:

eastern phoebe

Two on winter

standing

in the cold canal,

cattails

 

sifting down

into drifts . . .

winter silence

Fallen leaves

some in the water

some in the boat:

fallen leaves
