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.

Oil slicks float on puddles

rainbow washing

their raindrop rippled

surfaces

while a cardinal calls

from the dark

wet pines.

The scent of fresh turned soil

decomposing leaves

markers of spring

points the clouds

to warmer days

lying on your back

on some sun warmed hillside

without a care in the world.

A skulking hawk flees

a local band of blue jays

fierce in their numbers.

Letters, bills,

cards and flower catalogs,

addressed to someone

no longer here

simple reminders bring on tears

the absence a hole

the missing piece

a human form.
