A walk with Sister down back…

The closing date is near, and soon most of these blooming trees in the photos will be gone forever.   Not all…the part being sold is about 1.7 acres, but the remaining six or so acres will remain family property.   Here are a few of the phots I took the other day when Sister (my calico house cat) and I took a walk to the back, where the highway fence marks the edge of our land.   Thanks for tagging along!

Fall encroaches on Summer
not an ending
… a new season dawns.

Fall gently nudges
as Summer takes a bow
opening a new show in town.

VERY GOOD DANDELION CLOSE

the culmination of flowers
not faded…but making room
for the next generation

First seen as an anonymous “red blur.”

I’ll call it the Red Blur Rose.     There was a bright red Cardinal that exited the tree when he saw me before I saw him.   No time for the camera.

but they are prolific and persistent…off the “chop” list though until the blooms are finished.

Dad’s Plant lives in the house all winter. A remembrance from my ex’s funeral in 2001.

dreaming daisies

 

when the snow
covers the meadow
in silence
so profound
dreams of daisies linger long
after petal fall

The Shadorma is one of my favorite poetic forms.  It consists of six lines…                  of 3, 5, 3, 3, 7, and 5 syllables…respectively.
