daffs some think you daft,
as I once did with idle eyes
now full of your dance
moon of milk ahead,
trembling herrings of the lake
seen by wild she-eyes
the crab crawls out of
the hackberry — rabbit-toothed
buds buries in leaves
spring is drenched in green
I mourn that it came so fast
and miss what I see
apple blossoms snow
mid-spring undressing
fleshly bulbs, hubs of promise
in loops elfish vapour
mounts at the edge of the wood
now- a grey chimney
pie warm by the fire
with the fir where swallows nest
across my kitchen
brother cottage birthed
from a rugged lap of gills,
nooks — a lasting bond
How many layers has the world?
bugs threading through grass —
grass at the foot of the tree —
birds darkling in purple boughs —
horizons waiting to soak up the sun of dawn —
the airplane’s white whisper awakens the wish for
—  a shooting star
-E.S.
