DANCE OF THE FLOWERS
Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills."

It's spring! Farewell
To chills and colds!
The blushing, girlish
Each flower, leaf
And blade of sod—
Small letters sent
To her from God.

- Robert Burns

Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed
The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low,
Each like a corpse within its grave, until
Thine azure sister of the spring shall blow <...

SNOW, SHADOWS, AND SHAPES
While we were all asleep the snow came silently down, stealthily settling and filling all crevices and wrinkles of our roads and lawns. It reached fences, roofs, trees, leaves, and all. Fourteen inches fell covering the region in white, creating a magical world of glistening shapes and shadows. It seems that nature desired to create a magical wonderland for my puppy Mimi.
This is my neighbor's backyard as seen f...

The 25th of this month marks the first year of the passing of my sweet Koko (Kokopelli). The pain of her loss is still vivid but I am finding room in my heart to let Mimi in. I dedicate this blog to Koko and all the pets my friends and acquaintances lost in this past year. And I welcome our new pets who steal part of our hearts.
I invite those who visit here and who lost a beloved pet, to post a photo in their remembrance. Al...
