What If?

I wish
to add more
to my life

but survival
keeps getting
in the way.

Sometimes, though,
the moment
is so beautiful...

What If
takes a backseat.  ~kc

Sunday on the Porch

Perfect Sunday on the
porch--mild breeze,
sunshine, book in hand--

Feet propped up on the
tickling my ankle:

Green lizard perched
on my red-painted
tasting my
toes with his
tongue.         ~kc

More trees in town
When's the last time you
walked under
a stand of trees?
Felt the oxygen race
through your body,
sending your spirit

Whooping Cranes

Today's sunshine treats:

Pink blushing grasses by the wayside,

And high above,

a single whooping crane
soaring south.

Five minutes later,
his flock of nine
veering east.

I wonder if they ever found him?

Or if he'll spend the remainder of his days

Cold Weather in the South

First blue-norther:
two robins peeping in the cedar tree,
a skein of snow geese
honking above,
wondering where to land
in civilization   ~kc
