the day

 large hands can manage a few boro stitches
boro and sundowners
(for you who know)  
 melissa reminded me
though she didn't know it
 there were a few seedpods left
 so i harvested a packbasketful
in the meadow
(the hill mist and i used to charge up,
jump a fence at the top,
continue on...another life ago)
noted: a large scat. coyote?
certainly canine-like
 then went to get some wild grapes
i've encouraged them in front of my house
for birds
for privacy
for pleasure
 for a bundle or two
or shifu dyeing
i may take a big chance 
dye a larger shifu cloth
what do i have to lose?
