Junicho: The Fullness of the Moon

 

 

a gust of wind--
turning my back on March
to look for crocus 

around a rain filled pond
barn swallows gather mud 

a Hopi woman
paints a face
on the Kachina doll 

little girls give each other
a pedicure 

many fresh tracks
criss-cross the drifted snow,
wolves howling 

an army-green pickup truck
speeding south 

pregnant again!
he buys me sour pickles
before I ask 

tempted by shadows
shimmering in the heat 

on the lawn
a gaudy plastic bumble bee
spins its wings 

the book's flyleaf:
unrestrained criminal minds 

Lady Liberty
the fullness of the moon
rests in your crown 

putting on a new sweater
to view the trees
