Val Morehouse

Frog syncopation
beats down pond timpani on
water like a gong.

My husband and I
entwining near together
bud, leaf, and flower.

Dusk, an evening star...
firefly in the garden,
July moon rising.

Dawn's red cap early
over silver spoor tracking
dewprints of the moon.

and thanks to grandmother’s quilt,
