Of a Moment, Outdoors

The startled bark

And raised neck hair

Of my dog upon

Meeting a mushroom

Un-before seen

In the middle of

His accustomed path.

 

A broad-tailed hawk

Spiraling sunward,

Riding a thermal updraft—

Days later a raven

Rising in the same.

 

A tiny intrepid spider

Parasailing across my yard

On a thin silken thread.

 

Multiple popcorn

Gray and yellow bursts

Of whirling burrowing bees

Emerging from underground.

 

The summer yellow petal fall

Of a golden raintree,

Falling and fallen silent,

Like the onset of snow.
