the meadow’s edge . . .
winter mist
turning to rain

grass shadows . . .
an ashy mining-bee
returns to its burrow

the arch
of her back . . .
dune roses

summer heat
paint peeling from
the old postbox

bringing soft things
into the hibernaculum

the reservoir embankment
wintering buffleheads

she carries more clothes
than she’s wearing


the stray cat
a little closer

summer night
the moon
has come and gone
