School year’s over—it’s sittin’ time!

drifting to the bench,
easing down to meditate—
honey on her tongue

ravenous turtle
lumbering through the garden—
terrified gnats flee

Old Turtle Woman
rummages in the garden
for succulent flies.

Trio

original
 
 


Faithful companion,
come, let us weed the garden—
the nights grow colder.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Isolate the words
that pierce, provoke and anger—
let them starve to death.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Scrutinize each line
of Pound or Poe or Whitman
for hidden treasures.

Brooding

by the garden path
an upside down flowerpot
cottage for a toad*


this brooding, half-tamed country
beastly briars, wicked weeds
