May Day (Geneseo, NY)







Yesterday I posted a picture
of daffodils on my Facebook page.
But how do I post
today’s sunshine?

How do I tweet bird song
from the back pasture,
as the old crow looks on
from the bare-limbed oak tree?

Would YouTube audio capture
the pony rattling her grain bucket?
Would a super-sensitive microphone
broadcast horses munching on hay?

Step away from the entangling web,
I say to my friend who is myself.
Be in the world,
Not around it.

–Walter Pond, 4/30/15

  1. Love those sounds Walter. It really is so important to be “in the moment” not somewhere ahead. We may never get there….
