An empty house waits

for one man and his canine,

a fire in the hearth.

The moon this morning

sat high in the dark spring sky

sentinel of dawn.

Crows call from the woods

inside their church of forest,

pine tree sacristy.

Rain taps the flashing

upon the back porch window

subtle spring music.

Distant drumming

of a pileated woodpecker

sets the rhythm of the day.

Yard work, sun and sweat

produces a happiness

and an inner peace.

Dried grass lies in mounds

graveyard of winters twilight

ushering in spring.

Line them up

for the flavor of the day

whatever social kool aid

served up by

false prophets

ersatz celebrities

pretend friends

cue the puerile meme

photoshopped idiocy

the stupefied statements

that drip with sickly sweet

sugary sentiment.

Show me the iron in your truth

that dark lodestone

pointing to a cold, harsh

north.

Honey’s aroma

emanates from the hive’s combs

void of bees for now.

Cold gray sky beckons

my view outside this window

a poignant painting.
