on my father's face

of a smaller plane

until it breaks
an ache in my tooth

the deep blue sky and white clouds

awaken the dawn

above the field of ripe wheat

two umbrellas {inside-

/Fallen/

  
under thunderheads
bird droppings on the windshield
disappearing

thunderheads approach
announcing the coming storm --
birds forget to sing

Silent garden work.
Thunderheads in the far sky,
The birds stopped singing.
