long weekend

long weekend work
pulling out rotten deck beams
robe thick covered
in swirling sawdust motes

nail creaking crowbar sounds
pounding sledge hammer bangs
axe thunk plunging into wet rot

goldfinch sings sweet
in thick pine boughs

a ditch

a remnant - a ditch
draining an old swamp
behind new million dollar homes

night foxes wander up the sides
kids build walk the plank 2x4 bridges
couple kinds of frogs
brown toads, and maybe a salamander
tucked down in the rocks and mud
