waiting for approval
my grandchild
with boots on the wrong feet
was it that hard for me
to find my way in the world

  boot prints
frozen in the snow
the kelpie bitch
as she sniffs the wind

    reflections …
in the darkness of fog
a dog's eyes
lessen my feelings
of loneliness

home and land
sold this winter past
the smell of the fields
still on his clothes
bitter green

  you saw each day
as another tree to climb …
I'd hoped it would be
a birch bough that ever-so-
lightly set you down
