Ice Sculpture

Such a beautiful bird home
so cozy and warm
Birds all tucked inside
waiting out the ice storm.

A few who didn't fly south
make this is their winter home.
John brings their food and water;
his thanks a sweet song.

Soon comes the big thaw
birds tend to their own chores
John and his camera will be out
seeking spring beauty to explore.

My backyard tree

When I see ice I try to avoid it.
I see cold hands and wet carpets.

Dandelions
My kids sit in it.
They see dams to build,
rivers to cross, and icicles to play with.

Ice and a silo

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.  If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'

World of Icicles

It was cold, my friend, thick ice had formed
It simply stopped us in our tracks
Icicles as long as your arm was seen
It was as if there was no turning back

A place not fit for man or for beast
It was harsh and mean and raw
Could animals and birds survive do you think?
Until all this ice began to thaw?

But it was beautiful, simply beautiful
A glassy world was all we could see
Trees with branches thick with ice
It was just plain astonishing to me

Thank goodness spring is almost on the way
But of course Mother Nature is fickle
In the meantime I’ll keep my camera ready
To snap pictures of my world of icicles!

Conversation Landmines

"No, thanks. I gave up drinking after I saw the toll it took on you.”

If you must address someone’s overindulgence, do it in private. And making someone feel bad does not typically motivate better behavior.

The Poet's Field

I don't write poetry,
I cultivate the soil. I plant
seeds and water them. I watch
for tender shoots, pull weeds
and pray and wait
for a harvest
of words

Furious were the clouds above that sent storms
First lightening and rain then ice was created

An ice storm, the worst in history
Couldn’t possible be overstated.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Do you ever feel like just leaving
Like catching the next jet plane
To some far away tropical beach
Then you might be in a hurricane

So maybe this ice is not that bad
For birdhouse ice will always fall
My backyard tree will grow back
For my problems are really small
