Writing

from a treetop
emptiness dropped down
in a cicada shell


writing a rich new story
in the pond beneath the pine

Snow-capped stump, northern New Mexico
 


borrowing sleep
from the scarecrow’s sleeves
midnight frost


weaves a jaunty new snow cap
for the New Year’s festival

Second-story porches on a back street, Clifton, Arizona
 


Sweeping the sky,
she hopes for a cloudburst
to purge her porch.

on winter mornings
