~~ 1 ~~
 
sharpening pencils
with the word vicinity
niggling at my mind
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
some magic liquid
to summon seven wonders
from the shallow pond
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
three shorebirds piping
songs to the dunes at daybreak—
their liquid voices
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
lying down to dream
after bicycling twelve miles
buffeted by wind
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
a big bowl of dreams
swimming in natural broth
spoon ready to dip
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
a thin stream of juice
thinner than water or light
in leftover dreams
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
dreaming at midnight—
in the distance a cabin
with an open door

outside a cabin
the hiss of iron heating
in a roaring forge

blacksmith bending iron to his will
