Thunder a-rumbling ~
Cosy raindrops on my roof ~
Flashing memory

The fan in the room –

Does nothing to change the heat ~

Until I am there.

Taking 66 –
Familiar thoughts, drifting ~
Crossing Potomac.

Trench geology –
Note before I go over ~
The layers of time.

Old wolf, in the night –
His head, resting on his limbs ~
The rain, pouring down. 

Evening birdsong –
Not those of my native land ~
Familiar now. 

Virginja contrails –
Half moon cut with blue and white ~
Dinosaurs fly through. 

Goodbyes at airports –
Some folk loud, some not so much ~
Helloes are better.

The wind in the trees –
Unusually hot June ~
Pleasant reminders. 

A grove cathedral –
Sudden and complete silence ~
The boy inside, home.
