garter snake

but the snakes of home

are poisonous



child's drawing

a house that tells 

a different story



quiet song

by the river

spring green



avoiding close

conversations

still six feet apart



hair pulled back

covid-19 hairstyle

just might remain

Mary's Hope


sitting to 

listen to you

preparations paused


prostrate

over my brother's death

Lazarus come forth


kneeling to

anoint your feet

death ahead


standing

as I watch you die

waiting for new life

the sunlight clears

the neighbours trees



licorice

a chickadee lands

to investigate



the bananas

sweeten over time

fruit fly



a walk

through deep darkness

tears release



the freedom

of unplanned competition
