More Beginning

for B & J  —on a photo
BJs Foundation
For me, a long-time carpenter,
there’s something about
looking across the top of a fresh foundation

sills next
more beginning

I see girders and joists
cut and set to certain precision
the smell of sawn spruce
dry dust lifted, loosened by work boots
feel the tug of heft
see the whole thing, footers to ridge
assembling in thin air
windowed doored and floored
builders grinning

what’s next?
more beginning
