  1. Red Stone Shallows

    They used to call me the
    ‘Red Stone Shallows.’
    Walls of mountain range,
    the canopy for sheep that
    grazed my fields of clover,
    sparrows nested in my gables,
    the hills calling them home

    The old woman tended her
    gardens of wild flowers,
    potatoes, collards and okra,
    her baskets laden with berries,
    long gone beneath tangled
    weeds, her grave marker of
    Dogwood, covers her bones

    Stone fence crumbled at my
    footings; the old man had
    painstakingly piled there,
    his splintered roof, bleached
    in the sun, suppressing just
    barely evening mountain
    mists and morning showers

    The townspeople have long
    forgot Red Stone Shallows,
    the sienna treasure, bejeweled
    garnish, centered in the jade
    majesty of the Appalachia,
    sacred ground of the old
    couple, sowed there in love
