Of morning tea beside the trickling. fountain, Attending to the nesting birds of spring; Of sandwiches and chips for May-time lunch, The welcomed mid-day respite that it brings; Of languid, lazed “martini eves” of summer, Playing fetch, with puppy toys a-fling; Our coupled Adirondacks… Continue Reading “Of Two Chairs”
Forces of Nature Bleak days tumbled into months un-sunned, The path lay dormant, absent footfall sound, Neath cloak of white, in stealth, the damage done.

Poetic musings inspired by this photograph that I took, while eating breakfast at the kitchen table; ‘breaking’ my cabin fever and giving me a new appreciation for survival in a wintry world. Besides, I know that Spring is just around the corner.

It was nearly eight degrees, that sunny afternoon in upstate New York. Though we were well-mittened, wrapped in wraps and protected from head to toe, there was no denying that it was COLD! We carefully traversed the picturesque bridge and were taking in the… Continue Reading “Goose Crossing”
Tree trunk points the way, Ice-trodden trail sluiced from snow, Wintry, woodland walk.
As temperatures dip, I reluctantly embrace the seasonal cycle of gathering and sorting my summer apparel, to stow away for the winter. Yellow walking shorts are replaced with warm, fleece leggings, cotton tank tops make way for hand-knit pullovers, and sexy sandals are supplanted… Continue Reading “Winter’s Reach”
It is late August, as I languorously sip my morning coffee on the bedroom porch, noticing the slightly nippy breeze that foretells the fast-approaching end of summer. I ponder how best to respond to this week’s Photo Friday prompt, “FROZEN“, and realize that the… Continue Reading “Photo Friday: Frozen…Seasons on Ice”
