Serpent Mount, Peebles, Ohio

Camp Serpent Mound, Southern Ohio

Fireflies light night,
wood fire down to glowcoal,
quiet all around.

Campfire coffee and
open fire egg and bagel
after pre-dawn toke.

Fireflies go dark
a full five seconds between
each moment of light.

Early morning rain
hitting overlapping leaves,
mostly missing me.

Five Crows spread their tails
in Spockian “V” and fly
after mocking me.

Walk round Serpent Mound
quarter mile raised earthwork snake,
touch the bidden ground.
