spring morning --
the breeze
in her one curl of hair

    strolling down broadway
    keeping rhythm with her heart--
    her gibson girl hat

    the fortune teller
    deciphering the thin line
    to get to his future

    early spring--
    sparrow peeks through chain-link fence
    private eye

    Lake's mirror -
    the girl with her dishevelled hair
    and a weeping willow

    Very nice Stanford. Five inches of snow in
    Detroit today though, thus...


    winter wind
    the infant curled
    in the curls of her hair

    blasting old cape cod--
    spring three days away

    soy Celia,
    vine del frío,
    y la vida me ha llevado a las tierras del sol

    ¿Te acuerdas de mí, Stan?

    _____ hello Stanford. This WOULD BE MUCH BETTER
    FOR ME, IF YOU REPLACED "BREEZE" WITH
    "MOTION OF". SPRING MORNING ALREADY TELLS US THERE IS A BREEZE.
    IN ANY CASE I LIKED THE IMAGERY.
    ______ this is from W.E.G.

    coolness of night
    against bare feet
