I can see the outline
of a farm
where people chose to live

a small nectar of woods
surrounded by trees
and a hill crowding an old barn.

I can see space where
a horse views his world from
a fenced in area
to become a place of habit

I can see a gravel road
inviting us into this sanctuary
and sky’s blue above
a baby

Fall colours capture emotion
leaves of calico
dropping in to visit.

I close my eyes and see children
and a dog
brook trout---squealing pigs
and butterfly chasing

poppa long gone
but always close beside me.
