Connections: November 20.16

vernon-hill-44-2015-10This was my look

yesterday

as I stared out the window

in flannel’d dismay

at snow mixed with rain

shot like a sneeze

by a roaring cold wind

in a straight-line freeze.

From seventy degrees

to this? Overnight?

Ma Nature’s sense of humor

is seriously impolite.

Thanks yet again to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives, Vernon Hill Gallery.

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.
