August Sunrise


Overripe clouds
and a train
horn

a robin
motionless
in dry grass.

I love this one, William. Do you ever visit Tom Montag's blog (http://middlewesterner.blogspot.com/)? You're both in the same ballpark and may not know it....

Thanks! I just crawled under the fence into the right field bleachers....

Wonderful esp the image of overripe clouds!

Thanks! — I didn’t even need a ladder to pick them.

Rudhi, my mind’s eye uses a slow shutter speed....
