yellow porch light
illuminating darkness
swirl of candle bats

________________

wildflowers in bloom
the tractor stops a moment
then plows them under

________________

dressed in flannel
autumn maples before
they turn to grunge
________________

council of crows
dead on the road
poor choice of venue
________________

whippoorwill, cricket,
howling dog, screech owl,
quiet country night
________________

grandfather
strops the much-stropped edge
racing blowflies
________________

mountain shadow
fiddle music
sings through the trees
