oil spill - june 17 - five line

BP - I water
purple flowers
heat rises

oil spill - june 17 - five line

mourning news
gulls cry prayers over
congress holds
a hearing

oil spill - june 16 - five line

rise first over
dawngold sea
ancient flight path
to extinction

oil spill - june 16 - five line

morning news
we are at war
with the earth
still she spews and
shakes us off

oil spill - june 15 - five line

i muse on
morning glories
future blue
while oil spews
black water

garden - five line

vines twine
soon will be
blue flowers
i wait

that Walt Whitman
grass before the first mow
you long to loaf
deep in green fields
covered in clover

ginger cat

periwinkle vine
creepsup my front steps
same color as a
wool scarf i wore
last week
