A Psalm of Gaia
Athens, Georgia November 1, 2018 She leads me beside a vernal pool  where swamp frogs trill the early spring.  Her breath refreshes musty air  and I sense the chill on mud-slick skin. She turns me loose in a garden world  and weaves a mid-summer feast. Her ...

A Close Encounter with an Old Field
State Botanical Garden Athens, Georgia Do you ever wonder what you know? Did Moses ever think to go back to bush to watch for fire and hear the holy words again? For me it was only an old field. I have been back more than once, perplexed at how ordinary in ...

On the Care and Feeding of Rodents
Athens, Georgia August 25, 2018 There’s a squirrel on my bird feeder  scarfing a batch of sunflower seeds  which I bought for Carolina wrens  and a faithful pair of chickadees.  But hidden on the kitchen deck – a fully loaded water cannon  dripping from the...

Dawn Dreams in a Glasgow Cafe
Glasgow, Scotland July 15, 2018 Mid-July and zipped into layers,  I huddle by the high glass walls  of a Sauchiehall Street coffeehouse  on a rain-soaked morning in Glasgow. It is Sunday. Restless seagulls  patrol the glistened streets. Pigeons  pick manna ...

Stumbling Toward a Brampton Manor
Brampton, Cumbria, UK July 12, 2018 When you exit the two-car train  outside the village of Brampton  and leave the lonely platform tugging wobbly wheeled bags  loaded with too much stuff  the mile or two toward an old manor  which your wife saw on the web ...

Out as an Elder in June
Athens, Georgia June 2018 I like to take a neighborly hike  in the guise of an old man  grasping a crooked walking stick  with just a hint of a gimpy hip. I am out before the heat,  huffing up sunlit hills,  passed by young runners  and mothers rolling stro...

When in Late May
Athens, Georgia late May, 2018 As surely as earth tilts toward the sun  the long spring slumps into summer. Today the pastel sunrise  tints the cirrus with hints of pink. Soon the sky will glow again with the radiance of late May. Now the catalpa is covered...

The Business of High Spring
Athens, Georgia May 3, 2018 The soulful notes of a wood thrush cease  when coded warnings cut the air. A hawk swoops through the understory culling anoles and unwary mice. Chipmunks skitter for hidden dens.  A buzzard wheels overhead. Shadows and silence … ...
