daybroken fields
apricot in early sun
not yet morning

Moonlight on snow covered fields.

I am driving home through a poem, a sonata, through a dream.

The skies have cleared. Starlight. Oaks stretch against dark twilight blue.

The honk of geese overhead. I hear an owl.

Cardigan sleeves are damp from washing up. Pausing, through the window.

A brilliant flash of black and red: woodpecker at the suet. He stares, fierce, for a moment, then in a blink is gone, startled by the act of my seeing.
