Brown and green colors of dirt and grass 
three inches tall in spring mud between my toes 
wet from the sprinkler I ran through this afternoon.

Under a lowering gray sky fallen wet maple leaves 
red and yellowey brown veined against the stiff dying lawn
dusted with glitter from last night’s frost.
