The Farmer’s Laugh

Brown trout swim

in two twinkling blue pools

set perfectly

on the furrowed, sunbaked garden

where red roses grow –

red roses that part

to reveal warm, welcoming snow.

Little butterflies flutter by

cavern walls and up canyons,

out onto the cave’s wintry covering,

crunching over it as steadily

as the sun makes its pilgrimage

across the sky.
