The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

In the Backyard on Another 90 Plus Degree Day

The hydrangeas
Are loving all this
Double water ration
While the grass
Is as yet unresolved
If it's willing to spring
Back to life or
Instead will spend
The rest of the long
Hot summer in
Severe reserve mode
But my best attention
Must be directed
To the garden
Where each hour
Spent staking the tomatoes
And rearranging the kale
May be the last best hope
For tomorrow's salad
