Hillcrest House 2020

The peach tree 

Quiet and gentle 

A memory of the loves moved on 

The sandy cobbled earth 

A sign of glacial geology 

Of times beyond our ken 

The newly framed house 

A plan-form image recalling 

The gravel laden stream-tide 

Of ice crust melt 

Finding passage between  

Topographical masses 

The geologist  

Home from the mineral search 

Of deep underground 

Lounges in the crafted gallery hall 

And contemplates 

The remnant glacial lake afore 

And peach tree aft 

Recalling loves 

And beginnings
