June 30*

summer grasses

shoulder-high grass
heavy heads hanging
to the marvelous blue-dazzle heavens

                              blackberries snaking below
                              scotch broom burgeoning
                              unto the sky

                    bordered by blossoms
                    of wild rose        already tattered
                    unto the earth

          the barely apparent
          nod and twitter        of long stems
          from the not-apparent wind/spirit
