DPF / Hirshfield

from This Was Once a Love Poem / by Jane Hirshfield

Yes, it decides:
Many miniature cacti, in blue and red painted pots.

DPF / Oliver

And, angels remind me of Ohio and rain.

from Rain in Ohio / by Mary Oliver

while the thunderheads whirl up
out of the white west

their dark hooves nicking
the tall trees as they come
