pleasant treats on walks joyous greetings from old friends western kingbird pair
driving like madman scared of being left behind license plate: "COVNANT"
wood chips and tire tracks all that’s left of good neighbor bye mulberry tree
Three weeks without rain Rising summer temperatures Green hillsides turn brown
otherwise hidden mailbox and blue trash bins point to residence
long before sunrise chorus of songbirds break out first hymn on Sunday
spaced along low wall flowers posted like sentries imposing good will
