Have you ever seen rabbits this still?

There they are -- twins -- in the lower right corner (above). Still as metal. And what are they gazing upon? White bearded irises with a light as if cast by moon. Otherworldly, dream-scape. A quiet hunger.  Because bearded irises are rhizomes and edible rhizomes are miraculous -- ginger, turmeric, lotus.  All three of those words are petite poems waiting to be eaten.

  1. I don't remember asparagus when we visited " the country" as we called her house in Worthington, Mass. I do remember picking corn, swatting each other with stalks, husking the cobs, buttering them.
