New Year’s Day Moon – 2018

Super Moon on new year’s night

heralding times of growing light

As grievous fear and despair take flight

hopes for a brighter future reignite

Wonder

 

Snowflakes – January 2, 2018

***

The wonder of water

alive with transformative power

always in motion hour after hour

One moment a moist breath as trees transpire

the next a cloud, a snowflake, rain quelling fire,

frozen as an icicle and flowing in streams

giving form to ocean waves and resting in bays

endangered now in so many ways

***

Cross River, MN – June 17, 2017

***

Miraculous water, a life-giving force

but dangerous, too, sometimes raging

indiscriminately sweeping away all in its course

Perhaps we all deserve that final fate

unless we awake and act responsibly before it’s too late

  1. Enjoyed your new year reflections on nature’s phenomena. I too sighted the super moon last night from my porch. As beautiful as the radiance of new year’s moon are the snowflakes appearing as if stars have descended on earth. May I also wish you, Carol, peace, good health and happiness all through another rewarding year ahead…

    1. Thank you so much for your kind invitation, AATIF. I will considered your invitation although my other responsibilities (teaching, finishing a manuscript) make it hard for me to even keep up with my modest blog at the moment.
