Early porch sitting—
my coffee and book at hand—
a robin scolds me.

Up early to drag
the garbage can to the road.
The day starts out right.

It’s summer solstice.
Sounds of lawn mowers and cars
come through the screen door.

Heard rustling behind
bushes while on the swamp walk.
Deer? Bear? Mind plays tricks.

Fog on my swamp walk
puts me on set of Creature
from the Black Lagoon

Playing Rummikub
obsessively with cousins
every evening.

Nighttime dog walking—
a billion stars overhead
surround half a moon.
