Day 22 Modern Pastoral for Earth Day

Crying Day

Crying day again in the 40-year-old azaleas
robins hatched

pictures of bald robins hatched-hatching beaky begging online, everything open

Crying day
dogwoods     some bloomy-blur trafficking in highway dust

and perfect perfect sky

daytime moon on her white way to full
semi sports-car minivan pick-up roadster semi semi roadwork treeline
moon again

See it? see it?  
                  Won’t you write and say so?
