corn sprouts
but not deeply

after an afternoon of summer pruning
a grapefruit ale immediately refreshes

soon a relaxation edges on in
before knowing it repose arrives

as patterns near meaning
such responses elicit riddles

how is a summer’s day
when did you last hear a bell toll

roused again thoughts are trimmed
to keep quick from shading deep
