An overcast day
means soft hues of pink and blue.
The Chesapeake Bay.

Manuscript draft done.
I wonder, too many words?
Where’s the red pencil . . .

The gathering storm —
clouds knit gray with gray forming
receiving blanket.

Walking on the docks
can bring on a vertigo
experience. Hmmmm.

This weather’s insane!
I keep forgetting that it’s
just February.

Return of the hen–
she went walk-about leaving
her rooster forlorn.

A bald eagle flew
over my head this morning —
that was kind of nice.

Saw my bird posse
on my walk–the hen’s missing–
rooster looked depressed.

Early morning drive
past chicken farms and flat fields —
rural Eastern Shore.

Sunny afternoon —
fishing boats travel along
this arm of the bay.
