ONCE in a BLUE MOON

Once in a Blue Moon

Hardly ever happens (I’d say)
‘though maybe more
(or perhaps less)
often than you
’d like to think,
but,
I still miss you.
From time to time,
you’ll cross my mind,
then everything slips, tips,
tilts and skews to shades of blue.

ALL GONE




All Gone


Monday,
blossoms everywhere –
clover, Joe-Pye-weed, fleabane, Queen Anne’s lace, 
Jimson weed, jewelweed, knapweed,
black-eyed Susan, butter-and-eggs.
Finches flicking, hummingbirds bustling,
butterflies flitting, bumblebees madly gathering
(as though all their lives depended on it)
and I, watching, wondering at their hurry.
Wednesday, 
machines came
cut them down
leaving only
 decaying
 brown 
stalks
drying,
dying
in the
sun
and
every-
one
