breathe deeply this wind

taste walnut leaves in the air

sunlight in pockets


children blown about

in the playground, in the street

men file off the bus


robin on the fence

sings bright notes, searches for worms

cat creeps, ears forward


smoke on limn

congregations of new flocks

lightning horizons


the river

mirrors ignited

wineglasses of sun
