Entre Nous ;)

Ramblings and reflections of a part-time poet.

  1. let magic begin

    let magic begin

    let magic begin -
    lithe woodrushes snuggle ferns
    hermit thrush song thrills

    O, how light the heart
    deadpan deer alertly pose
    gentle crisp winds blow

    the buck moon shone bright
    sharp languid shadows answered
    filtered through stark trees

    night advanced slowly
    a weather worn stone observes
    the cold universe

    blazing silently
    stars seek our vision

  2. Poetry on the Divide


    In honor of Earth Day we had a poetry reading for the community. Very sparse turnout but it was my first time in front of a microphone reciting poetry outdoors - so all good... the only butterflies were the ones flitting about in the abundant sunshine just before noon. We had three poets from our little group, including myself, and one from a sister group from a community across the South Fork of the American River.

    Just chillin'... time for some hot cocoa and a fudge brownie!!

    Another memorial/funeral service yesterday for a dear friend; was invited to give a 5 minute talk where I shared 2-poems I thought might be appropriate:

    God's Garden

    (Unsure who the author is and I added 4-more lines of my own at the end)

  5. Change is good...

    We've been stuck in a heat wave for quite some time here in Gold Country. It's not too uncommon for September.

    California has been burning; records have been broken for acreage burned since records have been kept for the last 35-40 years. Eerie red sun in the sky during the day due to ash clouds... moon at night too. Sun beams are red tinged... cars are lightly covered with ash from fires miles away in the morning. We're fine here though our community had a small scare about a month
