Early mist
the roads scan
quiet, dustless.
Dew sleeves stems
of field grass
transparent silver

like mercury glass glowing
in low light
cool light
dawn.

Mid-morning promises

wider travels
predicted

like forecasts

just that much off
with the sun’s slant.

Plants tug at bees
or expire
await the swell of fruit
seasonal adjustments

fish sleep
fin the current’s
sweep, eyes wide.

Maps fade
in afternoon sun
directions alter
fingers trace.

Night reveals signs
red lines, bright lines
my blue-lined river.
