delicate small black feather
spotted and dotted in white
you bring such delight
small lightish-grey feather
having come to rest in the gutter
there you are found
an expected surprise this morning,
want to travel along, a little way,
with puppy & tea
blanketed in gray
brings calm, tranquility
goose ***** into river
heron takes flight
red headed woodpecker
flits from tree to tree
a happy morning sight
footsteps crunching dry leaves
deer dash off in a rush
white tails high
first morning of the new third month
this in year of the Fire Monkey....
late afternoon sun
streaming through the glass door
rays shining on pine needles
and bare tree branches
tall red rubber boots on this rainy morning
bring me joy, happiness.
stomping in the puddles,
hiking in the wet wet leaves.
standing still as the raindrops
pour down over umbrella,
drops pounding the pond with intensity,
watching mother nature in action.
still winter but with little
signs of spring emerging.
green green shoots of jonquil leaves,
a bit of sun and warm will bring color.
for now the trunks of the trees are grey
and branches bare.
crows caw on this quiet wet morning
flitting from branch to branch before taking flight.
raindrops mix with creek water,
rushing down over rocks
such beauty and peace
on this raw morning,
such profound love is found
in the stillness and silence...
in Mother Nature
in the Tao.....
