Northern Summer by Jeremiah Burrow

Winhall River in a dry month by Jeremiah Burrow

Five days good rain:
river wide as hips,
color copper.
Dog-happy to be outside
with Cold Mountain
squinting at pages
radiant under sun
breaking cloud cover.

Jeremiah Burrow lives an insanely domestic life in Vermont, where the winters are long, with his wife, four children, two dogs, and cat. He frequently dreams of the wild.

Cold Mountain, also known as Han Shan, was a 9th century Chinese Poet.
