In search of story


December 2.20: Coping

The inquisitive vine

must find out

what each bottle

is all about.

It must in tendril’d

curl and twist

make sure that nothing

has been missed.

It knows the truth

herein applied:

nothing’s learned

if nothing’s tried.


Happy birthday to D.J. Berg, who can grow anything,

even bottles,

and whose inquisitive vine is a lot like her.

And thanks to photographer S.W. Berg.




Connections: September 26.16

2015-10-65-bottle-treeSometimes the genies of summer

won’t let go their hold

so we arrange their favorite bottles

and put out our own red and gold

thus do we help Mother Nature

get on with the business at hand

cooling our heat-weary world

coloring it with new crayons.

Thanks to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives and the D.J. Berg Whimsy Archives.
