Androgynous child
Puzzles at being observed:
"What is he seeing?"

Black girl with head bowed
Stands lost in thought on a bridge;
Sister turns to scold.

Eleven at night on Bostok Road

Picks his way across:
Fat possum crosses the road
Illumined by car.

Birds call and respond--
Unseen voices from the trees;
Tears run down my cheeks.

Bare apple tree dances
Limbs suspended in mid-air
Welcoming the spring.

Strutting in the snow
Canadian goose takes its time;
No rush in the spring.

Outside my window
A bright oriole flutters
Shooting yellow rays.

Dancers on the ice
Glide smoothly, twirling, spinning;
Their grace is liquid.

New Paltz in the Morning

Squirrel in center road
Sits up in the sun and glares,
Fearless but frozen.

Waiting for the bus
Pop pitches ball to daughter;
Lessons before school.

Weather Forecast for Ohayo Mountain Road, Woodstock, New York at Seven O'Clock P.M. on April 7, 2007

Snow catches sunset
Dropping through the golden rays
Fluttering nowhere.

Six fluffy white tails
Bounce, weave, and bob to the woods
Where they disappear.

Swirling tufts of clouds
Slide around the moving car
Giving way to drizzle.
