Turning 2009

Poplar pond is brimming
up and over countless toes of trees
that bask nude
in the steely sun of a solstice sky
walking with a black dog
in the lavender twilight
we savor the moment
watch Venus and Jupiter cavort
always westward
heralds of another day
another chance
to count our blessings
in a new world
so fresh and full
