Hermit Advice

Don’t answer the door

It’s almost always bad news

Regular Advice

Always answer the door

It could be what you’ve been waiting for

Rain Song

Rain all day —

The lilacs bow

Rain all day —

Heads to ground

Geese graze

Rain all day —

What is green

Is greener

Rain all day —

The bucket splashes

Rain all day —

Tulips fold

Rain all day

I run again

Like a kid

Rain all day —

Rain all night

Out To Sea

Strange how I found a

golf ball way out in the

woods on the trail —

a sign of land


He showed us his firewood

Drifts he called it

Pulled from the sea

Split posts of spruce

Heating the room

Lighting the maps
