I’m a goose soaring

Dragon

….

Smoke stack on red roof
Remnants of a dragon’s ire
Wane in Winter’s sky

Donning his garden hat
He devoured non-organic beans
At Bob’s Bar.

I wish that life should not be cheap, but sacred. I wish the days to be as centuries, loaded, fragrant. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Sunrise Sitting at Sixty

Today I am celebrating turning sixty.

Sixty at Sunrise

Laurie M. Hawley (April 16, 1954 – Just Beginning)

Aspens are my favorite trees. I think this poem written by Thomas Moore is exquisite.

And the wind full of wantonness
Woos like a lover
The young Aspen trees
Till they tremble all over.
(Thomas Moore)

Beetle

Clean, clear, clueless sky
No distraction from above
I spot the beetle
