July 30: Overheard conversations

Dining al fresco--
man at next table
talks about someone I know.


July 29: Raspberries


So sweet--
one ripe raspberry
offered up in her hand.

July 28: Good book

Rain and clinging mist,
my head in the clouds all day--
unfinished book.

Reading CB Anderson's excellent book RIVER TALK. Perfect reading for a rainy summer day: resonant stories of life in the rural mill towns of western Maine, full of poignantly drawn characters living their ordinary, beautiful lives.

July 27 (2): Sunday afternoon

Curled up on the couch next to the cat, reading poetry while the cat eyes a sparrow out the window...

Rainy Sunday--
jazz on the stereo,
sparrow also singing.

July 27: Rainy day with books

Finally, it rains.
I'm home alone
reading erotic poetry.

July 26: In the back yard

River turned mirror.
When I turn off the mower,
goldfinch's chatter.

July 25: Big red Sun

Low hazy red sun.
Fin de siecle moment--
how long will we last?
