Listening to owls

through windows

They call

& say to one another

"reflect the glory &

see the expanse

of night, time & space"



Crickets stay late

& rise early

they care

w/ a listening fascination

and offer you

books of sound



Watching & waiting

like bears

in rivers



staircase trees

motion Summer

bright and cheerescent



opening

the sky

without

hindrance



red leaves

match

green leaves



be blessed

log cabin holder

hot chocolate deliverer

be blessed



the sky —

a peony blue

I found a nest

& two

broken eggs



watching a bee hover

over a honeysuckle field

I'm learning from children

how to see



A world of salt

sheets of water

& mountain lions jumping through



softest glow

touches down

golden white



A garden in a jar



The wind

gets started

with the breeze



more open meadows

and places near tall trees

it is best to carry

the clouds by hand



ants congregate near wood doors

blowing with the breeze

they are strong

& very light



I am

a beautiful garment



steady as a note

open & bright

gospel laden

delighted in the Presence



to hold a bird

— this is my wish

gray & brown feathers

neatly placed



an oven

a stove

a pot over fire

soup

a pastry

a stone warm enough

to bake bread on



shape + mold

my emotional

world



this bathtub

holds space

and time

I reckon

I am an anchor



A pack of doves

waiting for you



small keys of copper

create instruments

that open



houses drawn in houses



white pages

white robes

drawn & set by yellow flowers

branches weave

a new song



hedges of green

magenta blooms

white roses

& red peonies



I long to see a bear!

in smoke

at the beginning of a day



seashells

integrate

fashion & truth



seaglass & sea whales

punching through waves

nomadic & true



My sister

& I

laughing and laughing and laughing

(death has lost its sting)
