Amongst the corn

telling no secrets

–I’d been warned.

 

Submerged

close to consciousness,

took a breath.

 

From a breeze

etched in green

& white butter

flutter.

 

Passed out

in dirt & dung

& sprung to life,

 

Air, humid hung

brazed & burnt

by a sun.

 

Poorly kept

this furtive; this lemon-drawn

note.  Stooped & overheard—

this cricket-corn.

 

I had been warned.

Clouds

dry brushed by

morning sun

 

burnished

cadmium reds

& yellows

 

Brushing the

mountain top

lighted leaves

 

a deadly glow

 

Waiting

winter’s wind

leaves bare

 

the tippy-top

balding snow

ever near

A Short and Illustrated Thought #21

Pine needles

Dust a rocky trail

Jumbled as snowflakes

Layered

 

Footfalls muffled fall

The well shod path

Witchy, knuckled roots

Grab and trip

 

Glints of buttercup yellow

Dapple

Hot and bright

 

Chipmunks hitch

And scurry

Crows caw

“What’s your hurry?”

 

Patient feet

Up, up

And up again

‘til the top

 

Shaded eyes,

Distant stare

A deep breath

 

I wonder at it all
