spring

Poem – Merging Scenes

Evening clouds cross the open fields,
consuming empty space and trees.

We watch their fluid movements
and changing colors as the sun sets.

Each passing moment like snowflakes
and we struggle to take all of this in.

Lookout Mountain

Early spring and the trails are still covered with snow and ice. The sun finally visits and provides warmth for the rest of the journey.

Morning Antics

Up with a beautiful end of January sunrise, we walked and played with spring creeping in slowly.

Dogs of Spring #3

Spent the weekend chipping fallen trees and pulling stumps. Had enough time leftover to spend with the evening sun, the pine trees, and these two.

Dogs of Spring #2

The day after clearing part of the forest, me and the big dog enjoyed a leisurely walk beneath the clear and sunny sky. The early evening when the sun is below the tree-line provides lively shadows and hidden light scattered throughout the space between each tall being.

Dogs of Spring #1

Late afternoon walk in what feels and looks like late November instead of April. The puppies were happy to get outside and run through the woods. In this picture, Leroy is trying to figure out what Vinny is eating this time.

Dinner from the ground

Poem – Watching

The sleepy sun is just raising
one eye when we walk onto
the patio, one dog on each
arm, into the cold morning
with a thin layer of frost on
the ground and the apple tree.

Across the pond an oak tree
has emerged from its slumber
with a growing veil concealing
the noisy ravens watching every move.
