    Mood: Too much at once...

    Posted on 2015-08-28 16:47:29


       It was with reluctance that we said goodbye to our three poplar trees today. I always cringe when I see a still-living tree go down, especially in today’s climate of necessity, regarding carbon sequestering. In our defense they were old, unhealthy trees and huge hazards: we were surprised and relieved that they didn’t topple during previous ice storms. With our changing weather patterns ice storms are becoming increasingly normal occurrences. I know the robins will be quite upset to lose one of their favorite nesting sites. I, however, am grateful that my garden will now bask in a full morning of sunshine and absolutely love my new unimpeded view of the horses in their pasture. Let the real work begin—tomorrow—there are leaves and branches to clear and there is firewood to cut, split and cure. Thank you my three amigos, you did not die in vain. You may rest in pieces.

       arched across the sky
    turquoise fingers probe the dark
    dawn comes with a blush

       In a freefall of flailing revisions
    I grasp the edges of my decisions,
    and with a stifled writer's flick
    snap out of some blank conclusions.


    I should never have been so quick
    to discount my own delusions
