Love Poem, 2 of __
For whatever reason of all the things here
the wild blackberries in bushes lining the lakes
and roads remind me of you the most.
There are two miniature Jerusalem donkeys,
so they are Jewish it seems. There are three
horses and grasshoppers and dragonflies everywhere.
I am told there are also rattlesnakes and bears
and mountain lions but I haven’t been able to confirm that.
There are trees, so many trees it’s hard to believe.
I have nothing especially solid to say since
it’s been too long since I spoke to you in the flesh.
I will be so glad to see you when I return.
With love and an edge of fire,
