Barn in June

such a beautiful
      june morning!
sunshine burning
      an image in
   my ancient eyes.

across her fields,
      a falling barn
      squats beside
expanding woods.

      summer heat
baked barn siding
   many years ago.

   we wander past
      and see a ruin,
reminding me of
   my own ruin,

   still falling,
   still failing,
   still happy
      to be alive.
