Spelling out the letter by strokes of a pencil
Shading won’t lie about mindsetting stencil
I heard frogs peeping to dusk whispered deer
Road winding frosty as temperatures veer

Morbidity thinking sighs well away
From cities we ran into calming tree play
A mink and a muskrat who won’t say hello
Phone calls and video to wonder, fellow

Specificity gasped as generality passed
Neither can rule forgotten places repast
Meal making moments a monument sun
Rainy the cloudy kestrel swoop won

Competitive life that went to the birds
Eaten like food undigested like words
Idioms are sentences that don’t have to serve
But meaning is found by contemp’rary verve
