Curls of bark

curls of bark,
a crepe myrtle 
before spring …
the core of my being
smooth, unblemished

GUSTS, No. 21, Spring/Summer 2015


  1. I can feel your love and respect in this. Good one!

    I wish you luck with the interlopers. Be sure and stay on top of it. We had promises then after the third call, that number no longer worked. They put culverts in our creeks, added stone not from this area, when it washed out as we told them it would. It just ruined many things. I wish you a better experience.

    Thanks for visiting.

  2. A wonderful expression of nature and season and man's transitory harmony with both. .

  3. I love this one, especially the last two lines.

  4. Thank you so much, Gail, Wendy, and Jenny.

    Gail - The next year or two should be interesting, but we do have local groups fighting both the "bullet train" and the possibly-unnecessary additional transmission lines. Crossing our fingers.
