I love goldenrod, black-eyed susan, and the old worn-down mountains of the east.

    An 8-legged fellow strolling across the bathroom floor suddenly began to climb the air. He was tiny but even the minute can't defy gravity.

    Mourning doves call from the fence row, semis roar on the by-pass, the fan hums by the chair, the paper rustles when I turn a page.

    Cotton ball clouds scattered across a blue field, a hardwood canopy in shades of green, a desultory chattering of birds, summer begins.

    Light from the setting sun glistens on rain-wet leaves. I reach for a jacket. Four days till the calendar calls it summer..

    The wren doesn't care if I whittle my life away with twittering, only that I turn a blind eye to her nest in a dented tea tin in the shop

    We have not solved our enigma by evolving , escaped our grass roots. We cannot get above our raisings.

    I've spewed my keyboard sticky eating oranges at my desk; Isqueezed for juice, grated for zest. This one crackles, fills my mouth with juice

    As sure as rain makes mud, children will splash in puddles, seduced by the splat and the suck of the muck, heedless of their Sunday shoes.

    I remember Uncle's beehives, white boxes placed here & there, alien as Stevens' jar, on farmland I was free to roam, always gently buzzing
    Hmmmm - I was not always gently buzzing. I think I need to rethink sentence structure.

    The W. kids, who lived in my uncle's tenant house, walked the lane. They'd run ahead, throw rocks at the bee tree. I was not afraid of bees.

    Sometimes there were other children but mostly I walked the lane alone from bus to house, ears alert for the monster sneaking up behind me.

    I remember the gravel lane, the first long sloping hill and where it leveled out, a hollow tree in the fence row buzzing with honeybees.

    I remember the gravel lane from school bus to our house sloped down toward the creek; a narrow lane closely lined with trees.

    I remember walking the half mile of gravel road from the school bus stop, the buck bushes that grew on the bank beside Papaw's barn.

    I remember wading the ankle-deep branch, rocks would tip under my feet and crawdaddies would backpedal, leaving a murky trail of silt.

    I remember the branch, how the rocks clanked when uncle drove the wagon across the ford in droughty August, how the mud cracked and curled.

    I remember Buck Elk Creek, called the branch. I waded its summer-stagnant water, left a trail of silt. I'd not have mixed bourbon with it.

    A cold gray April 1, daffodils thrust up spears but show no bloom. In an ash by the road, a buzzard perches, watching.

    Black coffee in a white porcelain cup, red coils of the space heater reflected in the white, outside late March snow.
