earth note 73

allegheny mountain morning wake up
a tractor trailer whines off highway 150
a cigarette boat racer splits apart
lake docile
deer and woodchuck dive
for thicket
clear creek hides
trickles past hefty straight jack-pine
a pair of anxious cardinals flinch
with a shotgun blast from the ridge
leap to flight
turning a perfect 90 degrees
covers red maple
a moment
of eastern sun
