Missing Fishermen

Missing Fishermen

where are they gone,
those men in boats?

   my scene is like
      a wilderness.


no floating garbage
   can be seen.

      it's hard 
to understand.

   water pure,
and air so clean...

   (hard to imagine
where they've been)

   a day like this
   (the sun is warm)

   nothing like a
coming storm...

men in big parkas
   or light coats,

i cannot see them
   or their mess,

      it's not just
water, air or land

it's everywhere
   a man might stand!


where are they gone,
those men in boats?

my scene is like
      a wilderness.

Kal Lake #3 (2020)

Kal Lake #3

      green water
stretches from
   shore to shore

a day like this
   invites a
roadside visit

   a travel mug
of coffee and 
      plastic chairs

and so we sit,
   visiting
      at a 
distance

   sometimes
listening 
   to birds,
      sometimes
enjoying 
   the view
