Decisions

_____________________________________

Two roads diverged in a wintery wood

They will converge again with different tales

One trail to the creek, one between hardwoods

One should keep your feet dry, boulders to scale

Other entails wet rocks hops and strong deadwood

Each would be a challenge, now to pick a trail

Wildflower Wander

_____________________________________

With my sweetheart Wandering winded along a

Winding wooded path of

Waving wild flowers in the

Warming weather without

Worry and wearing wonder welcoming the

Wisdom of this wildflower wilderness and

Woodland with towering white oak.

April 15

First Warm Weekend

_____________________________________

Sitting by the fire gazing at the stars

A gap in the forest affords us the view

Tent in the clearing will sleep just us two.

*

For tonight this bit of nature is ours

Sitting by the fire gazing at the stars

A gap in the forest affords us the view

*

Sitting by the fire, warms as wood chars

Special moments like this are far too few

Spending time this way is what we should do

Sitting by the fire gazing at the stars

A gap in the forest affords us the view

Tent in the clearing will sleep just us two.
