summer schedule

 the moon was hiding
above the new place
i saw it
 one roof is green now
happened while i was away, 
rain will make music as
we work
 i hung this to look at
and the morning light caught
this landmap of cloth
my neighbor put up a sign
with a correction
that tickles me
ever resourceful are
north country folk.
last week was filled with errands 
driving to get the mac battery fixed (200+ miles)
and eye appointment and oil change
prep for three upcoming classes
(there may still be room...)
 but in my little nearby town,
i sat on the bridge abutment
between oil change and optometrist  
 and watched and listened
as the grasse river
vigorously hurried

Your neighbor's "fill wanted" sign is priceless. I too am a fan of hand lettered signs. They are little windows.

Velma Bolyard said...

ms. yes, and so fast and full this summer!
alice, yes. i couldn't get out of my car for a better picture because his house is RIGHT there!

robyn, thank you, it's pleasing me now that i can look at it, and the river ALWAYS pleases me.
indie, happy!

what does the sign mean?? I am intrigued

Velma Bolyard said...

cathy, must be an american thing. fill to make a yard, in this case. i think his yard is sinking and it was built rather haphazardly in a low spot.
