Life on earth

here Path in the woods
in a foggy drizzle
dark green and orange brown
purple wild astors
white floating dollar plants

drips snap and crackle
on the fallen leaves
and tumble undergrowth
a light Kagan orchestra here

the dog is eager
alive with smells
and the thought that
she might meet friends link

what more heaven does one need
than this?
