Today is wash day

White sheets on the line
billow, graceful in the breeze--
Today is wash day.

Remembering my grandmother Tyrrell's backyard on a wash day.

Winding the clock

The clock ticks away
the time you spent winding it--
proportionately.

My grandmother wound the mantel clock each day.

Monarch butterflies

Along the seashore
they follow the coastal road--
Monarch butterflies.

Inspired by watching Monarchs follow the coastal highway along the Delaware seashore.

Beneath the white oak

Beneath the white oak
mist blankets the old tire swing--
children are sleeping.

Video cable

Video cable
with six golden connectors--
sits gathering dust

A nondescript tree

A nondescript tree
still lives on the schoolyard fence--
where our class ate ice cream
