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 ...

Backyard Surrender

for Carrie

In our backyard
Two days leeward
Of July's full moon
It's as if our little lot
Overnight had been
Transported to the
South of France
The season is now
Full upon us

The garlic scapes explore
The curvature of space
While the hydrangeas
Bob and weave
In a steadying breeze
The blueberries have
Formed their minyan
And the maple saplings
Davin to and fro

There is no choice now
But to surrender
To the utter sufficiency
Of the green world
So devoutly at ease
