half moon rising
the owl’s call settles
in the shadows
 
 
deep midwinter
I hang my shadow
in the closet
 
 
ochre sunrise, flat sea
my dog and I choose
not to talk much
 
 
morning fog thickens
in the alder stand, a poem
begins in my boots
 
 
sweet first blackberry
my father gone now
forty-two years today
