Touring Back Yards

The Jasmine is beginning to bloom
just in time to distract me

from wherever it was
I thought I was going.

We are awash in colors here.
Greens and reds wear magenta bibs.

Nothing more need be said.
When history is written in a moment,

Post hole yield or Rune Stone?

runes like this
and lovers of dirt
find each other
as if by accident.

Wonderful shots; wonderful verse. I especially like your "distractability!"

Thank you, Jeff. Distractibility must be nurtured.
