Saw a Robin today
Bright yellow flowers
Gonna make it
Have wood soaking rains
Wet spring
Green grass
Trees green
Running up Turkey Mountain.

Too small
Twenty-two hour flight
Virus there
Now here
Wrapped in silver tube.

T.V. talking head
Have cabin fever
Travel 66 West
Rappahannock County.
Road block barriers
Hundreds bring virus
To billion year old mountain
Old Rag
The name.

Survive you will
Me also
Can’t imagine
You not on
Rappahannock’s horizon
