Goldfinch sipping from
Saucer in shade – grass so dry
Crunching underfoot

Stretching to the river bank
A blue-white shimmer

In winter sheltered
From the cold, but this summer
Imprisoned by heat

As I move, the trees
Filter the sun’s vain attempt
At spoiling my run

North Woods Reflection – post 4

June 20, 2012

One morning around 5:30 I walked down to the lake’s edge – just for the heck of it – and my mouth literally dropped open:

Island stands ablaze
Amidst a steamy pink fog
Lit by rising sun

North Woods Reflections – post 3

An involuntary reaction to nature’s conspiracy against my particular morning mood:

Sunrise, long shadows
Lake as glass, birds are singing
I laugh – such beauty!
