dock spiders

an array of webs grace 

the boat rails

each pattern collecting

droplets of ocean dew


signs of new life

sequestered way down deep

in the woodpile

with a roof over their heads-

the chipmunk and her babies


from a planter

outside the vet’s office

I pinched some dirt 

one more old soul added

to our family urn


O to summate

my inspirations

on the river

a mother goose leads

six downy goslings


hungry voices

of nestling swallows waft

from the cliffs

beaks eager to be fed

and parenting begins


live and love

for every moment


is as fleeting as

seawater bubbles
