in the clear water,

a white-yellow plume as dirt

mixes in the stream

again, beneath feet –
the dirt, dried by bright sunlight
scraping ‘gainst my soles

day 1856
I watched metal tines
dig, spin and turn the soil up
as Dad rotatilled


day 1857
my bulletin board:
“The Thirteen Virtues”, photos,
and good reminders

with trowel in hand,
I dug in the pile of dirt
looking for earth-worms
