I turn the smooth grey stone over in my hand
Like pages in a story


Purple lilacs blooming


His fenders drawn out
An osprey hovers
Then plummets like a stone.

Grey, green, blue and light
Folded together
With a painter’s palette knife


Water whispers and swirls
Approaches the bank, hesitating
Before continuing across the pond.

The great blue heron
Launches himself over grey ridges
His feathers like fingers brushing the spines of books.

Ripples pursue each other
On the Sun lit surface
In a wild Tag, You’re It! game.

May 11

Barely visible
The folded letter’s white corner
Inside its thick envelope.
