COVID-19 Sequence

Sunlit stump
chips of a chipmunk
deepen the stillness

The children’s game
whispering around me
quiet rain

Last night’s spring runoff
the quiet river carrying itself

Voices of unseen geese
fade north
I hold my breath

Child’s bedtime
the blanket that grew
on a sheep we know

Good Friday service
a branch of pussywillows
throws spiky shadows
