Tanka Tuesday

atop the tree lines

against the bluest of skies

an altercation

mocking bird versus a crow

crow, unmoved – until he was

Escape

I have been plotting an escape up to the mountains for a while now. But it never seems to work out.

I don’t want to leave just to have to turn around and come back. Too much on my plate, as my mom used to say.

So, until then, I dream. The mountain air mixed with the melodies of the rambunctious creek, always brings me peace.

in rural fields

a favorite country scene –

grazing horses

end of season storm

sail boat tossed onto highway
