Gray Rainy and All About Trees


'Gray Rainy' has come
to dwell in these woods;
in Wet Slippery Land
I now live...
The quiet gray
holds me still
and stiller.
I resort to
to music and to song
to carry my lighter heart along
on gray days.

    We had snow over the weekend and now we're back to rain before it changes back to snow tonight. So I feel the greyness too. What a beautiful poem that is, lg! You captured the magic of nature brilliantly. :)

  2. Talon...thank you for your kind words. We haven't yet had snow of more than one inch; it has started raining but is supposed to get colder still. Have a truly GREAT day...and I always wonder..."What are you working on?"

  3. I like that story - The Looking Glass Tree. I imagined you with a child on your lap reading it.

  4. Wow. Thank you Lynn. I am inspired by a stint teaching (substitute teaching) preschoolers and K-5 year olds. My last job was teaching 3 year olds; I so got into being in 'their groove.'

  5. Beautiful pictures! I like all of them but that second one is great, it makes me wish I was in those woods to wander around the trees.

  6. Hey Jennifer!
    So nice to have you visit. Come on in and do wander a spell!
    Have a truly great day! I love your blog!


Please do...tell.
