July 5: Hike

At our feet on the trail:
one butterfly wing,
evidence of past drama.

July 4: Under the pines

In my mother's yard--
sap not rain drips
on our Fourth of July picnic.

July 3: Dessert

Salt marsh at sunset--
we finish our ice cream cones,
heron flaps slowly past.

July 2: Backyard, Summer

The backyard is rich--
unmown, thick with ferns, daisies,
loaded with green stuff.

July 1: Young crow

After the rain stopped--
young crow's strident begging,
its red mouth open wide.

June 30: Alarm clock

Crow alarm clock--
they wake me too early
but I get to see eagles.

June 29: Oysters

Shucked raw oysters--
it's like eating the ocean
one bite at a time.
