June evening in Bearsville

A half-lit moon
in subdued sky,
an evening breeze
and rustling leaves,
and scents of pine
and sweetgum,
high
above the intermittent
runs of tires
on Yerry Hill,
and Sawkill’s
steady, hissing sough.

Then two birds sing
and one dove mourns
the loss of day,
while darkest squirrel
flies shadowed path
along
the sage in bloom.

Late March, 2017

Velvet rain. Small clatter of
sleet. Velvet again,
& the duck chime’s bamboo notes.
