Solitude moose calf, May, 2014I took a flat,
0.8 mile
a not bored walk
on a boardwalk

I’d seen:
A moose cow and her calf;
Two squirrels;
New pussy willows;
One fish carcass;
Haze from a green wood campfire;
Two doe mule deer;Silver Lake Mountain Reflection with Bride
A reflecting lake;
A distant bridal photo shoot;
A towhee;
Two killdeer in flight;
Two beaver (one slap happy);Beaver at Silver Lake
Three mallards in flight;
An aspen freshly felled by the beavers;
One hen mallard on her nest;
Three ducklings under her wing;
A patch of yellow columbines;Yellow Columbines in an aspen grove
Sunset on mountain peaks;
Glowing new green on an aspen grove;
A rushing, raging, roaring mountain stream;
A new place to enjoy.

I failed to thank my tour guide,
a Dad who taught me to look,
and God.

My Gifts To Her: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

December 28, 2012

What might a man do
to prove his love is true?
He may, under a full moon,
sing her to slumber with a gentle croon.

He may improvise a tender poem,
or bring back wildflowers to grace her home.
He may dance in a meadow alpine,
or simply hold her hand with fingers entwined.

He may dry her face when it’s wet and rainy,
or wet her cheeks when they’re dusty and grainy.
He may simply ask what she needs him to do,
and then he’ll, gladly, see it through.

To show true love takes no new invention.
Women ask that men listen and pay attention.
