DMC: "Wheelbarrow tracks" by Jone Rush MacCulloch

Wheelbarrow tracks
the soft, garden mud.

Having rained
three nights ago
the dirt
is like modeling clay.

Straight, simple
obtuse, acute, right angles

father would be
geometry in the soil

Wheelbarrow tracks
parallel lines
in which I compose a ditty.
