geese inhabit the parking lot this morning
"school's out for summer"
or at least the day after the 4th of july.
here at the edge of the marsh
i celebrate interdependence . . .
bird calls reverberate in my heart,
sun warms my skin,
i breathe in as all around me exhales . . .
a dragonfly flashes a brilliant wing as it lights
and small creatures everywhere go about their business
of keeping life going.
