Walking on Stoney Ground
Stoney ground makes no difference to Rusty Pups
Who just stream over rocks of every size
I, on the other hand, have started using a hiking stick
to steady me over rough stoney ground.
My stick is just a tree branch but it sees me through.
This piece I thought was finished months ago
but sometimes a piece has more to say
and so I have added to it and renamed it.
Is a piece ever really finished?
Our morning walk beneath heavy laden skies
had the Rusty Pups blending with
the beautiful rusty marsh grasses
that disappear under the sea at high tide around here.
