filling up the tulip cups…
sliding down long leaves

To a dead leaf, lost on concrete
I found myself considering the sadness of leaves and seeds that fall where they can neither decompose nor have the opportunity to germinate and grow. And so, on a (serious) whimsy, I promised the residue on the garage floor that when I was finished with taking their photographs, there, I would gather up them all and return them to the outdoors, where they may decay, or sprout, and live again.
I cry for the leaves on the garage floor
thrown out in new plastic bags
not renewing the soil

“Pitch-and-Toss” is a game of chance.
after clouds whose showers bathed
path and air…and me

Prompt: Write an Animal poem. (I think this prompt is yesterday’s.)
asleep, I saw her walk
toward me from the new workshop
she smiled and passed
waking, I recalled that she
had died before we built it
