a rose

is a rose ~ unless

one chooses




into the shadows ~

and beyond

where only the imagination has eyes

to believe…

guardians poised to protect

a silent presence

frik and frak




they scurry about ~ ~ ~

running this way and that ~ ~ ~

up one limb ~ ~

down another ~ ~

jumping from one tree to the next...

they jostle,

they squib


suddenly pause for a wink,

then back at it again....   and again....   and again....



**We have a pair of these little guys (could be girls, or one of each)…..always together and always enjoying our trees and roof and deck….  I tried to get a photo of both but they are too, too quick.  We have named them Frik and Frak.  The one in the photo is Frak – I think… or could be Frik………

in the wings





alongside a trail…


with tutus perfectly coiffured,

les petites ballerines

nervously stand

in the wings ~


anticipating their cue…

a feathered symphony


cheeps, tweets

squawks and caws…

coos, pecks

honks and quacks…

quite an ensemble of musicians

to awaken the senses ~

performing a melange of melodies

to accompany life’s many dances….
