Two Poems

by Lisa Fields

Cancelled Vacation

Are we lost
without the beckoning—
new sky
unwalled places
that open the rib
out from the lock

Tied to Home

Canceled plans
anticipation falling
back to routine
We will be here
for the ripening
wrapped in the whir
of hummingbirds­­––
sunglow of
tomato blush
the twist of chile stems—
green shoulder in the curl
of my thumb
slender eggplants
sweetened under flame—
dogs stretched across the floor
in a halo of fur
