ROUTINES

Hens of summer
from under cover
grazing irrigated green—

man,
bird,
and beast

making ample livings
at first light—
no need for greed.

 

CAMOUFLAGE IN GREEN

P6280003

 

Other worlds underfoot
within our own
become delightful details

in a forest for greenhorns
to explore new territory,
to learn fresh songs,

dance steps and innovative
ways of reckoning
that becomes instinct

beneath the surface
of these grasses grazed.
I am the intruder opening

an alfalfa valve, turning
water loose to run
across a thirsty pasture,

as one of its wet souls
leaps and startles me—
then freezes and stays.
