A TREE

a walk in the forest-3

Be like a tree. Stay grounded. Connect with your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break. Enjoy your unique natural beauty. Keep growing…

MORNING LESSON FROM A RABBIT

I pulled over and watched the rabbit on the road some distance from where I was parked. I wondered what he was thinking as he turned around and around, then he would stop and listen on his hind legs, ears perked and nose twitching. A beautiful being to watch just as the sun was coming up through the forest and dark shadows were slowly fading. The blackbirds were serenading the scene and I felt so joyful that I was at this particular spot to witness such beauty this morning.

I am certain the rabbit was deciding on which direction he should go and of course he hopped off into the sun choosing the light.

SUCH MAGIC

A hummingbird took a sip

and turned so easily 

in the sky.

The tiniest wings

this nature.

FLYING HIGH IN VICTORIA, B.C.

I am always thrilled to spot an Eagle but two sent me over the moon!  Eagles don’t flock and you usually find them one at a time.

A BEAUTIFUL LUNAR ECLIPSE

The moon has always been a companion to the people of the Earth. We give it names for the various seasons, write songs about it, use it in artwork and consider it romantic. It causes the tides to rise and fall, and sometimes lights our way in the dark. The moon has fascinated me since I was a small child; I have heard it said that an infant held outside under the moon will often reach out for it as if it were within grasp. It is often the first target for beginning astronomers with their new telescopes, as it is bright and easy to find, and offers a world of fantastic sights unlike any we see anywhere in the visible universe. It is truly the Earth’s own.

This lunar eclipse will be the last one for awhile.The next one will be visible in 2022. A blood Moon is one of the few opportunities we have to see both the Moon and the stars in the sky at the same time, since the Moon is usually too bright

PRAIRIE PERIL

Hawk - Copy

The hawk and traveler stood still.

I suppose the time had come.

She slowly vanishes, 

until I see no more of her.

 

I felt like a stranger

in a foreign land.

So much anguish here.

Brilliant red shadows

at death’s nearness.

 

Your wrinkled finger

pushed my tears away.

How much despair you hold

in a single human heart.
