a slow afternoon–
time alone with a hard rain
beating the grasses

damp infested wood–
growing in the garden shed
two types of mushrooms

Japanese garden
from one path to another–
nothing on my mind

grapes ready to pick–
cobwebs connecting bottles
in Grandpa' s cellar

dinner al fresco–
candles sputtering the scent
of citronella

footprints on the floor–
beginning the mud season
with a new rag mop
