Solstice of the Female Rain

Is anywhere as magnificent, as lovely, as lush

As my home?

“My home?”

I’m no more than an insecure egg

In a nest in a tree

Which has itself grown through magma and ice

Which held mastodon and dragons

And not so long ago

Was crushed

Miles deep by glaciers.

I am in awe of June rains as daisies bloom

And comfrey leaves overtake

Bravely flowering Iris —

Where blue flag wants the driveway

And infant, budless Black-Eyed Susan

Sublimely claims the center strip.

It is a blessing to live in Buckland

And if there is ownership, perhaps

This owns me.
