Connections: July 22.17

The impatiens on the screened porch

are spluttering, soaked and indignant,

protesting the face full of rain

blasted by winds unbenignant.

You’d think all the thundering torrents

would make this rank air feel better

but the impatiens will attest to the fact

it just gets wetter and wetter.

Connections: November 24

Vernon Hill - 10 - 2015-10The door that’s always open

the walls that don’t enclose

a line of sight unbroken

leafy fragrance freely flows

yet something guards, a border,

protective but unseen —

I fill my lungs and bless him,

the inventor of the screen.

Thanks yet again to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives.
