{mooblock=A Birthday Card for John Cage On His 100th}

a sudden rustling –
the ailanthus drops a leaf
just before sunrise

tiny prayer flags lift
in the slightest passing breeze –
late summer crickets

what’s this soft tapping?
downy woodpecker testing
October cornstalk

is it a bird’s call?
someone walking in the dark
with one squeaky shoe

{mooblock=Just To Put A Stone In There}

Old stump by the road
veined with rippling cracks
traced by white fungi.
Someone has placed a grey stone
in tribute or memory
or just to put a stone there
on top of the stump.
Fungi beneath the stone too
dead as the stump is.
