Against a Backdrop

Why not write about the red
canoe against the green grass?
Perhaps about lobster traps
stacked one on top of another?
Or a bald eagle flying over a marsh
Or the way light defined
a tree trunk and it's branches--
branches no longer supporting leaves
Or the way the ocean
sidestepped a large rock.

Grass held that red canoe,
two lovers waiting for the tide.
