Butterfly in the Sawtooths

Wings bearing echoes 
of childhood, she savors 
the old neighborhood

Mid-summer Cloud

Brush of low, late light

on Earth’s mid-summer wraps, Dusk

meets a regal cloud

Three Grandfathers

 
Eighty years of dirt
And tears, old friends reaping their
Garden of stories

On the shoulder of

a gravel-hot road, glad glade

of nodding blooms

Twinflowers

Churning river

Ragged rock, a fallen pillar

River’s crash and pounding thunder

Maiden ferns, hymn-filled grotto

Roll of a River   Leave a comment

Evening on the Umpqua River

 

Sun slips, colors deepen, the river and me, we pulse toward gracious evening

Each blink a seamless rock-rolling picture show.  

Summer’s green still flecked with Spring, early berries flushed like Fall

A she-merganser showing me with dandy splash how to catch

Both a ride and a meal on the planet’s prettiest stream on the year’s finest day,

Everyone immersed in this easy-hard role, unfailing flow

Of give and take

 Where? How?

Waving leaves show

me the way, the Tao
