Kicking Leaves Again

The trees are bare
Yet no trace of a season remains
Raked and bagged, it is no more

Except in my little plot of this earth
Where the leaves still swirl
Lifted by the November gales

The energy spend of a summer season
Will remain, food for the life in the soil


It will again
Be the the green of our next growing season

For now I will be out kicking leaves
Until the snows of winter
Blankets the fall and prepares for a coming spring

To Unlearn


A life time of learning
Still trying to form an opinion


A finite grasping at infinity


In awe of those
Who know it all
Before they have matured

Yet time has come
For me
To unlearn

So maybe one day
With a heart and mind of a child
I will see the wonders of everyday


Landscape Thursday : Rorschach Eating Habits

Red Bud leaf

Rorschach Ink Blot

First impression – was the leaf folded when whatever ate it?
Second impression – why can’t whatever is doing this, do its’ eating during the day when I could get a picture of it?
Third impression – It’s obvious to second impression for the eater would become the eaten – eating in the light of day

Curious Friday: An Evening At Lowes

Negative Light Rays

The day started out as a wash
Predicted showers and thunderstorms for the afternoon
Came with the morning light


By afternoon it was sun and clouds
But a threat still there
With evening a front approaches
With words like severe

Yet house colors have to be considered
So it is off to the store
I went for the ride


For there is a clear view of the sky
With fronts moving
Clouds billowing


With a setting sun
And colors in the sky


Landscape Thursday: “In lieu of flowers, the lone surviving conifer asked that donations be made to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Plants”.

I hope you take the time to read the short article I believe he made his point and it was nice to have one of my post mentioned

Cycles and Ripples

Cycles and Ripples


Cycles within cycles, overlapping, within others
From within particle of soil to a planet traveling thru space
Something must fall for something other to arise
It is the continuing cycles for life to build up on that that had come before
Of matters so simple, of matters so complex


Like rain drops falling, into a body of water
It touches, it ripples, momentary suspended before it falls into itself
Ripples upon ripples, each from every drop
To matters so simple, to matters so complex
