Grateful

I wonder still how I managed to find you. Of all the people in the world, how is it that our paths crossed? Why did you open your door to take me in? Why comfort me and save me from the cold? I was invisible. Plenty had passed me without notice. Nobody stopped to look […]

Song of Sorrow

It was 4:39 AM—the moment of your passing. Your cries awakened me from a dream.  Silenced by your outrage, even the birds froze at attention. Huddling closer. Instinctively seeking the comfort of one another. While you were wriggling desperately to free yourself, I sat immobilized. Listening. Imagining. Shuddering at the thoughts that carried me to […]

The Artist

I must learn to do this, I think. To start each day with such flourish. Surely, I would be tapped of strength before I even started. How I admire you, old sun. While I spend my days napping, it seems that you take your rest only when the moon steps in to stay you. You […]

Underground World

I’ve found almost all of them, I think. There’s one right here, where the tall grasses part ever so slightly. “Momma,” I beckon, as I bury my nose in its scent. “Come. I want to show you.” “A hole, pup!” she exclaims. “No, momma. An entrance to another world,” I tell her. A labyrinth of […]

Our Stream

  We share a stream. Sometimes, when we reach that stretch of water down by the falls, we find her there. A doe standing part in shadow—dappled light on her shoulders, where sunshine has broken through the trees that line our stream bank. She drinks, as I do, from this very spot. The water, which […]

Mornings Like This

It is mornings like this that we see him. When the mist above the pond is as high as the treetops. The geese have just entered the water after deep slumber—goslings in tow. And dew splashes about our legs as we traipse through the grasses. The heron lifts himself from his perch. Not sure this […]

Too Late

She is too late. I try to stop myself, but I am lost. Lost in a private battleground. Out of control—but in total command. With every bite, I stifle the itch. I stop to catch my breath and suddenly the urge is silenced by the sting of air on raw flesh. What is left of […]

Lone Goose

For days we have watched you. Circling the farm, searching. Alone. Frantic. Your belly lit by morning sun, its shape changes with every breath as you expel what sounds like desperation. Your calls tell me of your sorrow—your confusion. Where is your mate, my friend? Did the fox take a meal at your expense? I have […]

A Spring Storm

The storm came on so quickly. Purposefully. A blue sky suddenly turned angry. The wind picked up with a force. I liked the feel of it—the excitement. I squinted through the bright light of a sunset trying to show itself through thick clouds on the move. The air filled my nostrils. A crack. A rumble. Then […]

The Fox

You and I, we are not so different. I see myself in you. Your luxe red coat. Ears at attention. We were simply separated by evolution. I hear your barking at night and I know we are somehow one in the same. Isolated by a creek. A frost covered field. And, the comfort of my […]
