Poetry: "evidence"

We're away visiting Andy's son in the HOT south until next Tuesday, so my posts may suffer...here is a poem inspired by the walk I had with Mike as described in yesterday's post.


evidence



sometimes the aftermath

is like the grounded helicopter

blades that clog the gutter,

a spongy mass of organic material
compressed into geometric patterns
where water once engulfed them

          it takes a shovel

          to clear them away



othertimes, the result is subtle,

like grass clippings that etch the edges

of yesterday's puddles,


Nagasaki-silhouettes bio-chalked in green


yet barely seen

          a stiff wind is enough

          to blow them away
