Take me on a Sunday trip.
I don't care - anywhere you want to go.

Goin' to the Farm

country road

Goin’ to the farm.
See that dirt road wind.
I’m leavin’ all the problems
Of the city far behind.

The Anole

The anole stopped
and stared at me.
He didn’t seem afraid at all.
I turned my head and he was gone …

Autumn 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.
Bringing him to a warmer place.

Earthday

I saw the above picture on Earth Day. I added the caption, but after I did, I realized that while it is a nice sentiment, it is in error. Earth was not created for anyone. Earth is a magnificent biological system. We are each blessed to be a small part of it.

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?
