Starry Webs

Starry spider webs

Dew-drenched grass and gleaming limbs

Drift of winter fog

Fog, Water, Snag

January Sunset

Slowly, sun dropping

Stream of gold on scarlet tide

 Ruffled sounds of dusk

Dream House

In blue-cold current
Downside-up, yellow-bright warm
This river-dream home

For the Fallen Ones   6 comments

I have some things dear
to me, and I really feel
it when they are gone

 Forest Fog

On my forest walks in the hills just north of town, I’m still shaken by the sight of shattered trees left behind from an early November ice storm: fallen towers of ancient fir, splintered old maple limbs, raw-fingered root masses. Many of my personal touchstones are gone from their sky-filling places, and I miss them, so I search until I find their long, strong bones stretched out downslope, already settling into their next stage of giving.

Bald Eagle 1

Keen tranquility
Scanning the duck-ruffled lake
Until hunger strikes
