"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

A Few Poetic Leaves...

Nature walk

The invisible touch
of a crisp caress
reboots my heart
on vibrant green
and wisps
sliding through
the understory of forever

Green

Green diamonds
casade
on fingertips
vining their genetic path
with gravity entwined
in silent determination
seeking
working
living.

Nubbins

Crispy chips
tell crinkly tales
of thirsty yesterdays.
Fuzzy nubbins
whisper hopefully
flashing hidden jewels
luring neighbors
to the feast of living

Life

A molded patina
of sooty black
and gray and
silver and almost white
Snuggles into
a bed of bronze
and chocolate
tan and rust
unaware of its
earthy rainbow
moments of living
and breathing
and eating
and feeding --
an organic citizenry
of legs and wings
and mandibles
paws and cheeks
and roving eyes
fluttering by
in the autumn
of life
