At the gate the dust is deep.
A feral hog at dawn returning
to his lair along the creek

atop a raccoon aiming
for the water trough, powder
soft between their toes

atop several head of cows
upon my own boot track
fading with yesterday’s breeze.

The time is now
to think about
the sign we leave.

  2. Good one, John!
    (BTW, have you read Sid Marty’s books? We discovered him on our Big Trip this summer.)
    Too bad record heat is predicted. We could use some record rain. Let’s all vote no on global warming.
