Hazed by August heat,
distant greens and blues
wash shadows of pine
with moist purples.

The green goes on, they say;
sky maintains its roots.
By night pitch-sweet silhouettes
penetrate black soil.

Outside office windows
good things cross the border,
glide twisted furrows,
seed, green, shoot up like weeds.
