Jay Friedenberg, US






jumping to conclusions—
                                          a grasshopper
                                                                       impaled on barbed wire



a solitary traveler—
pale moon
in a black pond



last day at the beach—
a school of minnows
darts in unison



gold in the hills—
Sierra Madre
last light



sparkling dewdrops—
one by one
the stars



alone tonight—
the stillness
between stars



woodland path
a rabbit’s footprints
suddenly stop



tidal pool
the heron and I
shift to a new leg



against the current
a load of clouds









to the top
