May 30: Return

As we ferry home
seals basking with pups.
I'd like to slip out of my skin.

May 29: Mimic

Thrasher welcomes sunrise--
torrent of borrowed notes
transformed, transforming.

May 28: Birds and blossoms

Chestnut-sided Warbler
What's more beautiful
than a host of warblers
poised among apple blossoms?
 
Blackburnian Warbler

May 27: Beyond Nigh Duck

In the distance
flock of gannets melts into fog.
We expect a whale.

May 26: Washington Street

Morning, apple tree--
sudden shower of petals
as I drive past.

May 25: St. George River

above the river
where alewives used to run
osprey curls one foot

May 24: Budget

Head in rows of numbers.
A Merlin zips past
over the empty harbor.
