sidewalk rambles, at 2 a.m., after a rain

July 30, 2013

spider sits and catches its breath, droplets on its back

sinewy slug barrels along, bisecting my path

bats weave tangled threads of flight

Hibiscus syriaca blossoms droop, drop   /   no bees bringing bustle

 

stars like sprinkled sugar in a not-dark night   /   how will night sky in NM compare?

as I stop (lost in thought), raccoon hurries by me, ducks into hedge

 

green velvet leaves froth, spidery lace floats

earthworm on its way to somewhere else

berry? beetle? beaded back of spider, scurrying

pine boughs cradle silvery half-basket

 

Speed Limit 30 — dangler hide-and-seeks with moon

it’s 3 a.m.  . . . time to go in.

    Stars like sprinkled sugar–hold that thought. You bring passionate attention to the natural world. Fix your gaze and carry on.
