Connections: August 16.17

Siblings teach us early on

the gentle art of sharing

MOVE OVER! HOG! YOU’RE ON MY HALF!

while Mom eats worms, despairing.

 

Thanks again to the  S.W. Berg Photo Archives.

Connections: March 1.17

2017-02-07-frozen-crow-dl%0d%0a-verginThis forlorn and crabby crow

adorned in German springtime snow

in silent cold indignity

looks a lot like cheerless me.

March tornadically announced

last night its roaring lion pounced

winter’s beauty not denied

 I prefer the lamb’s springtide.

Thanks to the Dianna Vergin Photo Archives.

Connections: February 8.17

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAThe other day I happened upon

a forum on NPR

a rabbi’s words illumined

a mood as black as tar:

when optimism can’t be had

we must insist on hope,

and keep in mind the difference

as we walk this slippery slope.

I opened the window this morning

Die Zauberflöte silvered the air!

the crimson Papageno,

the high-headed Chanticleer!

Corny it may be

but I need to think it so

the return of morning birdsong

as rabbinical treetop echo.
