Angular gray stones 
mortared in the puddle basin 
with drying sepia mud.

Autumn Onset

The season’s turned 
a cool wet corner,
across the pasture 
the aspen grove 
is starting to rust.

Mid-Morning Cuppa

Lift the round bowled yellow mug
down from the high sink shelf.
Reach four more times piling 
graduated brown powders
into the white ceramic interior -
light cocoa, yellow brown maca
umber lumps of instant decafe
bare sprinkle of terra cotta chipotle.
Now the steaming kettle and the 
spinning spoon.  Now the first sip.
