Tidewater Canto


I hear birds pouring song
into the red maples
like Autumn Water
telling of  flight and bloom
chill and heat,
 
you and me
walking in a southeast wind.
Our shadows  fallen
on the old road --
 
peelings from this fruit
our bodies have become,
settler-ripe, offered
to a homestead
hungering for love.
