MOVING COWS 3

 

 

We dream of coasting
into a ripe green pasture
that wants for nothing.

 

MOVING COWS 2

 

 

Ripe April grasses
bellyhigh on the leaders
blind below their knees.

 

MOVING COWS

 

 

Mothers and babies,
pastoral dreams cross the green
with girls a horseback.

 

PLASTIC WATERGAP

 

 

Stretched across the creek
for looks like herding humans,
not stampedes or floods.

 

TREE FROG POLLYWOGS

 

 

Bowl full of croakers
deafening some dark spring night
with endless love songs.

 

EVENING MOONSET

 

 

No babysitter,
black night ours to navigate
like coyotes and owls.

 

ROBIN AFTER RAIN

 

 

Despite politics,
we all have work to do like
making rain repairs.

 

WITH RAIN

 

 

Smoking curlicues,
dancing citronella flame—
evening mosquitoes.

 

PRECURSOR

 

 

No doubt about it,
high-tech’s forecast proven true
with red sky at dawn.

 

FLORIFEROUS MONKEYFLOWER – Mimulus floribundus

 

 

Small yellow faces
drawing life where their seed rests
in cracks of granite.
