like darkened bolts of lightning,

Snow and icy mix
form curvy abstract patterns.
Just how cool is this?

Leaves frosted with snow

elegantly wait till wind

removes their make-up.

Old road warriors

 

Old road warriors,

still running strong together.

Boys in men's bodies.

Ice lines




Lines cut through the ice. 

Just why are they shaped this way?

Mother nature knows...

Horn blasting love's song,

with wings mightily flapping.

How can she resist?

Ghostly plastic bag

 

Ghostly plastic bag
waves from a branch in the sun.
Painful reminder.

Ghostly plastic bag
waves from a branch in the sun.
Can't we do better?

Honk if you love me



Honk if you love me
extolls a Canada Goose.
Enough already.

Enough already?
But I really do love you.
Great, then quiet down.

Male Mallard


A male mallard,
iridescent head of green,
floating on the pond.

What are you thinking?
Could it be with spring's coming,
females on your mind?

Spring Harbingers

 
Robins, spring's harbingers,
finally back to join us.
Welcome back our friends!


How was your winter?

Not as cold down south, I hope.
Thanks for coming back!

The paradox of giving


Church of the Minorities II, Lyonel Feininger, 1926

By generously

giving of ourselves we can

live abundantly.



Paradoxically

it is by giving we receive.

So let go and live.

a male mallard's head shines
brilliantly for all.

Wicked winter winds




Wicked winter winds
blew their way throughout the park,
leaving behind tracks.

Simply be


 

Often times it may

be better to simply be,

rather than to do.

Boot Hockey

Twenty or so years
of playing boot hockey with friends
on ice outdoors.

Twenty or so years
of running and sliding
on ice outdoors.

Twenty or so years
of developing friendships
on ice outdoors.

Twenty or so years
of boyhood fun with aging guys
on ice outdoors.
