7-12 Trilogy

Hard to believe that some of this was written at Yankton College in S.D., around 1968 or 1969. Ye gods, ~ 50 years ago!

 

Trilogy

 

Blobs of rain

pound inlet

oyster grass

 

Pads of light

dab sand with

swabs of steam

 

Pelicans

veer between

troughs of waves

 

.           .

 

Mist rises

in spires

from a pond

 

Dragonflies

search over

lily pads

 

Mosquitos

cloud above

my canoe

 

.           .

 

Sickle moon

reaps fields of

cotton clouds

 

Breath of night

mountain mist

wets my cheeks

 

Galactic

pinwheels spin

in black skies
