forgotten barn…

old vines reach upward
faded red siding gives way
cracks and seams yielding

a place in the country…

“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.” Carolyn Jourdan, Heart in the Right Place

Tall grass…….

As you sit on the hillside, or lie prone under the trees of the forest, or sprawl wet-legged by a mountain stream, the great door, that does not look like a door, opens. ~Stephen Graham, The Gentle Art of Tramping

Writings: Hot Flashes & Plucking At Wisps of Nature

  I came upon this wonderful piece of writing The Auguries of Innocence, over at Under Our Boot Soles. Give it a read and enjoy the humor, provocation of thought about nature and what is wild. Most people that visit this site are hell bent on getting as far from human contact as possible while wetting a line. Yet, I think most are equally capable of patiently indulging the back yard garden, tending to some live planting or admiring the changing leaves in a city park. It is good we slow down enough to enjoy the present rather than suffer wanderlust so often we look past the beauty, the ‘wilderness’ that was before us. Enjoy the link and be thankful if you don’t suffer hot flashes, because your Summers will be filled with relentless air conditioning and your Winters with open windows.
