sightings and change

 hosta leaf
found dried and stitched
with stains and holes
 hold it against the light
light it up, i say,
and look at this
look at the architecture holding this
together as it fades
it will be paper
or glimpses of thoughts
 as will the flicker's few feathers 
 a small collection that i love
a new draftsman to me
but not really
baskin's works dance throguh my dreams sometimes
and then they're nightmares
 i was shappy to find this
 and this one found me

 a jewel for you
to heal your hurts
 as will this light show
 first day back at work today
meetings today and tomorrow
and then kids on thursday
the school year commences.
a new program,
a new school, a classroom!
