EVEN INSIDE ~









Even Inside




You were asleep

I blew out the lamp

Turned to you —

A firefly blinked






  


Summer Leaves



I listen

To all



Its length

Of a tall



Maple tree

In the rain









Duo




The same bird every night

In the same tree singing

The same song that does

The same very songful

Thing inside of me








  
It Is Now The Birds Settle




You would walk

Upstairs to our room

In the early evening

So warm

Undress, while looking to the woods

Lie down



Hours later

I would find you this way








Explaining To Carson




On the boat ride we saw

One town, one island,

Two motor boats, two

Kids swimming from a canoe,

A redtail hawk flew over

The mountain, a blue 

Heron flapped around the bend
