over barren dunes
hints of a distant harvest
and the reapers’ songs

~~ 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
