a moment ~ ~ ~


Version 2

pre-run prep…


each giggle begets

an indelible memory

that brightens my spirit


warms my heart…

~ trailblazing ~


Version 2


watery eyes,

runny nose,

freezing fingers,

burning toes ~


poles in hand,

laces secured,

ratchets tight,

crunching……. sounds…… underfoot ~ ~ ~


such a wonderful time ~ ~ walking in the snow ~ ~

with trails ahead


a smile in tow!


……… just purchased a pair of snowshoes – so much fun!!!

sunrise in the ‘shire




a view from the deck

on the edge of morn ~ ~ ~ envision

the beauty …………………………………. of a seeping sunrise.

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………

waiting…in the wings



anxiously awaiting their cue

they stand single file

tutus poofed, ribbons secured

calling all dancers………PLACES!


ballet willow corps

a corps de ballet of seven weeping willows

muddled thoughts




fog hovers overhead


doubt casts a shadow

within one’s mind ~

allowing fear to rule with an upper hand.



daylight from above


the light of courage from within

can slay

the haze

a morning walk


when i look through a blue lens,

i see a vast and majestic sky taunting me with visions of marshmallow pie


when i look through a green lens,

i see spears of grass reaching toward piney ballerinas poised in emerald tutus adorned with crunchy, chocolatey cones


when i look through a yellow lens,

i see bees buzzing amongst roaring lions in a jungle of clover and crawling crabs


when i look through an orange lens,

i see day lilies dancing to concertos of tweet tweets and cheeps cheeps, twirling and waltzing in the whooshes of a breeze


when i look through a purple lens,

i see carpets of violets, branches of lavender and drapes of wisteria fluttering in the wind


when i look through a red lens,

i see Her Majesty, the Rose Queen, holding court patiently while sitting on her throne of dazzling rubies and prickly thorns


when i look through a pink lens,

i see trails of petunias cascading playfully amidst prancing squirrels and hippity hoppity hares


when I look through life’s kaleidoscope



that surrounds me,

i get lost

in a reverie of splendor


a midsummer’s day…
