A walk in soggy weather,
the past two summers, timely,
the bones of what's needed is seen,
down pasture, under cedars green,
privet still holding on,
vines refusing to go,
the stumps of their brethren waiting,
where this year I'll cheerfully mow,

Nice, Harry. I really like it. It grounds me, although mine up here is still frozen.

The wheels run slower in the winter,
today they ran a little faster,
up to the woods' reach,
hardwood deadfalls harvested,
cherry for bacon,
white locust for heat,
spinning in the muddy tract,
butters in the seat.
..

it was deceptive there
looking green-brown
thatched with rough grasses
but after a time or two of wheels a-crossin'
compressing the underlying mud
squeezin' ground water up
gettin' stuck spinnin' in the brown
was child's play

but i looked swell in my overalls
swingin' that log-splitter, din't i?
(when i wasn't killing the dirt....)

Oh glorious Ku,
avoid the ruts,
you're allowed.

You split firewood beautifully,
incise my post with care,
curry in the kitchen frequently,
never forget to get the eggs,
frown at soggy apostrophes,
yeah.

Such a wet morning,
thin fog curtains the hills,
creeks and rivers brown and full,
standing water on the flat lands,
droplets cover the window panes,
c'mon, rain.

A pair of mudders, somewhere,
somewhere, laid away on a sunny day,
perfect for walking the soggy fields,
can't be arsed to search,
nap time.

Curb Appeal

Two twenty dry,
sand the pine,
incised and marked with black,
stain the fishy carefully, red and gold,
minnows silver right below,
repeat, scribe the last.

The potato's crave the ground.
I can deny them, not much longer,
turn the covers back carefully,
sprinkle yes'm 'tween the sheets,
lay all pillowed in their beds,
tucked, dreaming of the spring.

a valentine's kiss
a valentine wish
a heart-shaped box
with a cartoon fish

a coffee and sammich
a hug's loving language
grey skies are so sleepy
but love's running deep. rich.

So Harry's a fish
and ku is a moggy
who cares if it's raining
and lovers get soggy?

Oh glorious Ku,
your Waterchild loves you,
wet or dry.
