A single feather, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona
 


Midsummer morning—
under a feather red ants
shelter from the sun.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


Hapless bird loses one precious feather.

~~ 1 ~~
 
organic cherries—
red and ripe and luscious
in a blue-green bowl
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
our midsummer’s feast—
dining on organic figs
and wedges of cheese
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
organic apples—
whining about the bruises
that soften their flesh
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
organic silence—
good news for the old poet
scribbling at midnight
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
ripe organic plums—
ants come from three miles away
for the summer feast
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
my shoes coming loose—
organic cotton laces
crumbling into dust
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
for ripe fruit she pants—
bunches of fat purple grapes
organic, luscious

Ending

Long shadows at day’s end, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


As shadows lengthen,
ants snuggle down for the night,
their mother the sand.
~~ ~~ ~~
Shadows lengthen as the day ends.
