II.




Lizard doing push-
ups on the side of an oak,
pooching out his throat.


After a hard rain,
damp pads of leaves overwhelm
the bright green grasses.


Construction on the
street, echo of hammers; dear
lizard, please relax.


Under the leaves, on
a bright morning, after a
rain, there are shadows.


Today, I'll change hands
to eat breakfast; spoon in the
left, bowl in the right.


Outdoor furniture
seems so weary after a
hard rain has fallen.

Hot enough today
to turn the dew into steam;
a cat licks the fog.


The gutters are still
dripping water, long after
the storm has moved on.


Morning birdsong, all
the colors and pitches of
a toy xylophone.
