spring hike
--my mind tightly focused
on my blister

two heron
one steps to the left
-------------the other goes right

in my kitchen
--------the tea kettle whistles
---to Bach

winter day-
---kissing the buttercups
by memory

a child's picture smiles
from the page

death mask
-- a dead trout's imprint
in the river sand

breakfast kiss
----sharing the egg white
on our tongues

sea grasses
-------take on the color
of sunset
(inspired by a photo by Carol Raisfeld)
