begins like, unlike, some others while I am wandering
through the wildflower-populated meadows,
walking along spring-filled brooks and streams,
and tracking through these sheltered woodlots haunted
with small creatures and the air filled with raucous calls,
plaintive cries and tuned songs of jay and hawk,
sparrow and wren.  Not even the water bug skating
on the mirror surface of a pond, nor the ant crossing my path,
or the small snake squiggling away into spring weeds
quite turns my mind so as to lose that sense of recall,
of memory never quite slipping away, for written words,
personal actions.  This and all brighten and clear out cobwebs
so my images of family, living or dead, present or memory,
come again and again always somehow in a clear, present focus.
