Living With Nature   Leave a comment

There were bulls and calves and mothers of calves jumping like puppies when a trailer overflowing with rolls of hay pulled up to the gate.

One of the proud and muscular bulls stood not far off on a hill watching, waiting, wise, protective, wary for all that he has seen – All that’s gone before in his still unsure, all enclosed, forever-dependent life.

A smile wide with joy inside soon was stung by sorrow… Surrounded by town-homes and billboards of new homes coming; a strip mall in the distance – How long before this scene and all of its inhabitants soon shall be no more.

Tears that follow  joy are steady streams transporting the Spirit, released through love, ever resident in our heart.




The Rosetta Spoonbill and the Photographer   Leave a comment

I will allow you to come near

And trust you will not intrude

Although your contraption looks absurd

You stare and speak with kindly words

You say you’re fascinated by my plumage and my bill


Our Creator gave me a lifetime lasting covering

With this wonderful added utensil

For I can forage, and I can fly

I can prune my wings and in this warm sun stand here and dry


What of you, oh two-legged creature squatting there

With that thing raised to your eye


Covered almost head to toe

You must have something to hide

I much prefer the sport of blooms in competition

Striving for my heart’s affection

Than indoor games, and keeping score


In God’s kingdom, I believe there’s only winners
