July 28: Insomnia

A sort of relief
by the time the first bird sings,
something else awake.

July 27: Backroads

Driving home after dinner
fawn in the headlights,
stars out the window.

July 26: Body art

In from the garden
my arms are smeared with
saffron patches of pollen.

July 25: Meditation

Among the flowers
bees and a skipper.
No politics tonight, dear.

July 24: Wealth of orange

In the trailer park,
by the cellar hole--
every yard rich with lilies.

July 22: Day lilies

Stealing lilies
under cover of dark
from my absent neighbor's yard.
