Notes from A Trip to Russia

Summer 2009

LLyn De Danaan

Estonia to Russian Border #1

Sullen Soggy Sky.

Only bands of yellow brush

punctuate dense green.

Estonia to Russian Border #2

Cows are hidden

Somewhere in low woods

sleeping in slim birch.

St. Petersburg

Clouds over Neva.

A quick tern dives suddenly.

Tug approaches stone bridge.

Peter Hauf

Peter-built fountains.

Gilded turtles and goddesses

crouch near water slides.

Lagoda Lake
