half moon rising

the owl’s call settles

in the shadows

deep midwinter

I hang my shadow

in the closet

ochre sunrise, flat sea

my dog and I choose

not to talk much

morning fog thickens

in the alder stand, a poem

begins in my boots

sweet first blackberry

my father gone now

forty-two years today
