Reflections on Tomales Bay

sky water on the bay

kayak paddles splash

break the smooth glass

we leave a trail of ripples

a swath of dreamy blues

in tandem rhythm we

head upwind to Hog Island

Oysters on our minds

listen dear
do you hear that noise?
not exactly a bee’s bumbling
more a benign bear’s growl
a bassoon out of tune
followed by a hiss
a hoot owl’s croupy cough
is it the greedy grunt of a ravenous pig?
the snorts of a wild boar’s nose
pressed to fecund forest floor?
whatever it is
that eruption at the door
please turn on the light
i can’t take it anymore
oh my god!
it’s granny’s snore

lemonade

Summer Song

first make the lemonade
lemonade for sale!
paint a picture on the paper
a yellow cup of lemonade
“lemonade” it says  “25 cents”
tape it to the big box
set on the sidewalk
get the pitcher, paper cups
and a chair for you and me
then we both wave and yell
“Ice cold lemonade
lemonade for sale!”
