EARTH ~






PLUMMAGE



It seemed like
they were
waiting for
us when
we reached
the bottom
of the trail


and it
was their
husbands
or sons or
boyfriends
we passed
on the


trail
going up —
these three
women from
India with
ravishing
dresses and


skirts and
shawls
and scarves
waiting on
a bench in
the woods
I had to


shout
over
(friendly)
"beautiful
colors!"
and
if I


thought
those
were
beautiful
you should
have seen
their smiles

Happy Earth Day, Bob--

I'm going to celebrate by running along my favourite Niagara escarpment trail and imagining the ancient Iroquois lake waters that 20 000 years ago would have covered most of the town I live in.

Hello Conrad,

It sounds like a holy ghost run, so you'll have companions with you. Invisible but more keenly felt.

We took our run yesterday (photo accompanying the Birdhouse) seeing out there in the distance, over the hills, today's rain coming closer.

all's well, Bob

It is, Donna!

Or else make-it-so.

It's raining, and we've been out for a taste.
