Echoes of My Neighborhood

This week my neighborhood is more suburban than urban. I am in the mountains breathing good air, and getting good sleep.

              last night the rains came
nature’s lullaby
dreams danced in childhood

image

                Twin maples, now bare

image

The smallest of the forsythia bushes, such curves.

image

Something was slittering through the crunchy ice

image

Remnants of fall long gone

image

That picnic table is doomed after many harsh winters

image

Old mini cabin holding secrets of tiny creatures

image

Crunchy snow and ice along upper edges of the creek

image

The winter sun was starting to set the light on the water was captivating.

I am trying a new form of poetry called the Lantern poem. So called as when done it should assume the shape of a lantern with a syllable count as follows
1-2-3-4-1

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines further describe the 1st and the last one is a synonym to the first…..pretty cool!!

rain
heavy
all last night
lulls on tin roof
storm
