Granville, Ohio #2
birds circle above in the milky white
sky. Cars creep up the hill.
Rocky bench and trees and stones, grays and
reds and browns, black moss and pebbles.
Ants, always in a hurry--they
have large spaces to cover. White
birch, peeling bark, browns on tans
climbing to the lush leafy crowns
hanging like hair. Red and orange
yellow flowers and an evergreen
forest of spindly pine.
