In love with season all over again
since moving back to this southern
Michigan homeland, I keep looking
for evidences of the people
who brought me here, even as
they’re staring at me out of the old photos
and tintypes but instead
my mother's death makes another
mystery unsolved, another question
unanswered.  It was on the tip
of my tongue for the last 10 years
but, hey, everything's clearer now -
everyone's taken their places,
though they aren’t talking. Another fall.
Her birthday month.  Sometimes I ask
myself how many times I'll be able to
let go of these leaves.



morning rain -       
even the cricket's song
newly washed

end of summer -   
two swans
synchronize their circles

winter mending -       
sliver moon
in morning clouds


Jennifer Burd,  Ypsilanti, Michigan
