Three Poems For These Pandemic Times

We approach the pond
Leaving our shoes

In the wet grass
The frogs jump

In a chain reaction
The closest ones first

The sound of little splashes
Then we settle

Watching them slowly return
The mirror to the water

Cherry tomatoes

On the deck
Tomato vines wander

Cherry tomatoes
Red as lipstick

Hang in a cluster
Behind the railing

Right where we
(And even the chipmunk)

Failed to spot them
Until I happened to be

Looking out the living room window
Dancing to Smokey Robinson

Estate Sale


We pass an estate sale
And pull over

In the shade of a few maples
3, 4 and 5 dollar tables

The books are 50 cents
Spread out on a blanket.
