"Spring has returned.
The earth is like a child
that knows poems."

-Ranier Maria Rilke

Seeing Green


Well, not exactly green! A little bit of brown is more like it, but the truth of the matter is, the snow is starting to disappear. The deer are enjoying the tender feel of the bare earth instead of  frozen snow and ice.  On those frigid days they would slowly approach the back deck, hearty and healthy. They would settle themselves on a little hillside next to our backyard each evening. There has been a group of 4 most recently. I'm happy to say, today their numbers jumped to 7! They continue to tug at my heartstrings with their beautiful big eyes, ears, and fuzzy faces. They look at me with a sense of Hope that some corn will trickle down to them like magic. I've noticed that they grind their teeth when they are relaxing!
         So, here's a little bit of green, I mean brown as we get ready for Spring!
I love Spring!
  Happy St. Patty's Day!

Mysteries, Yes

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
 to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the
 mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity,
while we ourselves dream of rising.

How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the 
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always,
from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.
