This is our garden guardian, Stumpy, seated at the hub of the known universe, noting the Big Dipper’s clang as it changes its tilt, and watching for the wax and wane of sweet woodruff at his feet.  He has grown more cryptic with time, merging peacefully with lichen and leaf litter. His words are few, the usual mix of earth and sky.

                                                                            heart, feather-lined lake
                                                                            star-dropped cares, caught lightly
 
                                                                            Sing your full-bucket
                                                                            song, off-beat rhyme
                                                                            spiraled ellipse, anchored sweetly

Warmth—crocuses
break open among
the tended rocks

 From the old ash tree
like joy boiling over
shining gusts of song

Draw close, peer through a wildly wee window, and the ordinary world drops away. Your one-eyed view through keyholes, knot-holes, and Easter egg peepholes is a one-way ticket to the other side, the shimmering one that almost makes you fall. Into. That’s how I feel when I step out from my bright, electric world onto a spring-green, low-lit trail with its tender vine maples and sword-pointed ferns. Take a look!
