Here’s a poem from my book Digging for God:
Trees shake their shoulders restlessly.
What to do with those wandering
songs we used to sing?
Singing about Autumn in a Summer Song…
What is the season for leaving
when is there no more leaving?
Wines age gracefully, though
You should drink some of them
six hours after they are bottled.
here at the creek ,
wild phlox bloom still.
