scattered into focus

 it's almost the end of the school year (a week and a half to go)
and i'm experimenting
 this little bit of kozo traveled my table
and landed on this announcement from frank
 and became briefly a moon
 i have saved many
like this laying mama snapper
and many, many painteds
but not all
by any means.
this morning's snapper
did NOT appreciate my shovel 
helping her across the busy highway.
but she made it.
 at the new place the little drainage
 with reflections
and despite all odds
 up through the gravel roadbed
 this fellow emerged
and happy even when
i photograph the thing upsidedown.
i told you i'm scattered
next weekend i will be on my way to colorado
