Mid-Winter Reverie

I. Looking out her window in the gray November,
She saw the squirrel in his leafless tree,
fretting, nattering constantly
She heard the goose's call resound
As rhythmic wings carried him through space.

Maybe it's because of the beauty of this area but the people here are among the friendliest, most good-natured, and warm-hearted that I have met anywhere.

How Fresh 'Tis After Morning Rain

How fresh ‘tis after morning rain!
Re-creation of new day.
The storm has passed and washed the stain
Of yesterday away.

Could It Be Spring?

Watching the sunrise. Hoping for spring.

Winter Blues

In Minnesota, we say there are two seasons ‐
Winter's Coming and Winter's Here.

The Half-Tailed Squirrel

A mild mystery about ears and earrings, things lost and things found.

Reflection on the Larceny of Squirrels

The other day, I watched one neighboring squirrel raid the nest of the homesteader in our front yard tree. A few days later, the homesteader buried another cache of nuts on our boulevard. As soon as he left, the neighbor came over, searched, pillaged and re-buried our homesteader's bounty. No wonder the homesteader can't find his stockpile!



Last Words

Eagle stalking mouse

Purple-blue night into
Blue-white day,
On the glacier,
There he lay...
