a butter churn
with a name burnt on the bottom
in the antique shop
you might buy it
but it will always be hers

  he chooses
his vegetable seedlings
with care
… sends his secretary out
to buy my birthday gift

    late afternoon clouds
dissolve into boundless blue …
I rethink
my own definition
of a perfect life

open sky
a collection of songs
the lark
shows my heart
its home

  fare thee well
my own true love

when i sing
those songs of home
a thrush flies from my mouth

    asked by this child
how I might choose to live
my life again …
the green heights of spring
in a thrush's breast
