ladybugs and bees

Three Grandfathers

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

Woodpecker Loop, Finley Wildlife Refuge

Woodpecker Loop, Finley Wildlife Refuge

 

Looking over the overlook

Walking the boards of the old boardwalk

Casting cares under the overcast

And letting the day dream me

 

What do the waving ferns say?   2 comments

Fern edges

                                                                     They whisper, they coax.

                                                                     A cloud moves, and the shadow goes deep

                                                                     When you bend on knee at their appeal,

                                                                     They pull

                                                                     you under dizzying spell

                                                                     Pulse of in-and-out edges

                                                                     Reminds you to breathe.

This is our garden guardian, Stumpy, seated at the hub of the known universe, noting the Big Dipper’s clang as it changes its tilt, and watching for the wax and wane of sweet woodruff at his feet.  He has grown more cryptic with time, merging peacefully with lichen and leaf litter. His words are few, the usual mix of earth and sky.

                                                                            heart, feather-lined lake
                                                                            star-dropped cares, caught lightly
 
                                                                            Sing your full-bucket
                                                                            song, off-beat rhyme
                                                                            spiraled ellipse, anchored sweetly

Evening reverie

From unseen frogs, a thousand
