Most people I know have been wondering, “what is up with her and all that walking?”

It started this past May when I decided to start walking off my growing quarantined butt, and it seems to be sticking.

But what they don’t know is.. it’s the little gifts I am party to along the way…

falling leaves

pelted by raindrops –

game of tag

Maple

the tall maple is a shimmering yellow

the deep crunch beneath my feet

sounds mournful still

its twin to the left

was being gnawed at by rot

and had to be removed

since then I haven’t had the heart

to poach its sticky syrup

I will never forget the gasp escaping the earth

as huge sections of the trunk was felled

the house shook
