The Gardener Knows

The Gardener knows

when to harvest His ripe gifts

the first fruits of fall

for Madeleva / hccjr 02082010


cold wind from the north

dark grey clouds east – blue skies west

hot sun from the south

George Floyd

dark death descending

helpless prey pinned to the ground

a murder of crows

hccjr 06022020


at dusk whippoorwill

ceases his gentle complaint

waiting for the dawn
