Courage: reflections on a midsummer walk

Robin, emboldened by tempting chokecherries

drunk with pleasure

smacks into sunporch glass

unruffles herself

and feathers on

in search of more sweetness

3 leg dog_s

3-legged golden retriever

overweight with fur

hops heedfully onto the tailgate

dreaming of cool tile and

a bowl of fresh water


Wiry terrier

all energy

stops, drops, rolls rolls rolls

on the morning grass

defying confines of leash

and reprimands of human


Joy is rock

to despair’s scissors
