Herb Kauderer




looking up

color vision decreases
as distance increases

leaving us myopic
the distant
night sky

sixty beckons
on the horizon of September
& it’s painfully clear
what won’t be accomplished
before my course is run

frozen Berkshire fog
clings to branches
long after sun
has cleared air
