Forward Movement

Forward Movement 4×6

what is this feeling
lost in overgrown forest
peaceful memories

one thunderous step
an animal heart beat song
marches left, then right

Everything was Easier, Yesterday

I fear mountains
surround our bandages
which does little to tear open
our thoughts
when we aren’t thinking,
standing around the street corner,
watching neon blinking
and reading billboard advertising.

All the signs
point to us
in the center of collapse
while uncle tells jokes
sitting at the bar.

Tread Lightly

be kind creation
smile on your birding friend
glimpse the miracle

Snowy Owl. Plum Island MA 1/25/2020. Atlantic Ocean.

I hesitated to post my photos of my snowy owl trip since the owl photos are a bit blurry. But hell people, it is a Snowy Owl! And my first encounter. But certainly not the last.

This bird is down right stunning, majestic, gorgeous, and oh so patient. I watched the wind ruffling her feathers, her ever alert, keen sense of hearing, and her head turning to see the four corners of the tundrous field for close to an hour. She flew but never far away. She glided as a seaplane hovering the waters.

My heart skipped beats as I encountered this regal bird. I will talk of this for years to come. I thank you for being part of this monumental day. I left the island with a skip in my step. And hope.

Field notes to those wanting to take part in life’s sacred dance. Please remember to tread lightly. Earth’s preciousness is a gift we should treasure and never take for granted.

The Poet’s House – Spring

Found art in a used book. I colored Spring in a b&w image.

Translucence
follows suit
of gray doves -gone.
Hope circles, in the sky
orbit
sharp green blades
that lie low
in soil, kneaded
with nimble thoughts
to sprout joy.

It is not spring in Massachusetts. It is spring in Jeanne’s attic, where all such things are stored.
