June (c, d)

June (d, untitled trio)

the black sky lightens
to the chirping
of a single bird


morning shafts of light
a flurry of dust motes


No ripe wild raspberries, yet
such sweet perfect unripeness
in this very moment

June (c)

Cup In Hand

"Light mist stretches across the river"
I stand above at my window
cup in hand still as any tree

in concert with awesome beauty
a blank day waiting for me
to fill with joy and worry
that I have done this all my
life makes it all of my life
tiny details dwarf the grandeur
animated by the spin of wheels
I have to bow take my leave

the trees sigh stand their ground
