tugs at the earth

    clear sky
    on bramble bushes
    a broken kite

    pouring a patio
    the cement man's shadow
    ripples in the pool

    there were thirty foot waves on lake superior
    during that november gale.

    the edmund fitzgerald snapped in half.
    the entire crew was lost.

    twenty-nine sunflowers
    circle the lighthouse
