Golden Mountain Foot


 
Earwigs heard
emerging harried
from their snug of rot
sunflowers - a home - composting
off-yellow backs on dead-yellow plaque  
death-driven bedfellows
 
Light, so less temperate in a rain shadow
spruce saplings fanned - a someday fence
sentinels in trimmings
spiderweb terraces  
spanned interim gaps  
 
The scurriers told me all
 
Bare gritty feet
risking all on bike pedal teeth;
now I'll nevermore ride open-toed...
 
Funereal tender killdeer wailed - ashen chirps
crushed in heart
even before their eggs were
 
It's always wise to hone your moanings...  

Dusk drew it's own shrouds
exhaling murk  
like graveyard vapors
