oak titmouse

found this little one bouncing around in the greenhouse this morning.  must have come in through the open ridge vent.  feisty little bird and not happy about being handled but definitely needed a little help finding its way out.

tarweed

            the clean, resinous scent of tarweed
            bittersweet memories of a past life
            mingle with
            gratitude for the present
            a past-life's dream come true

bullfrog

found a bullfrog in the kitchen garden today while i was doing a little watering.  first one i've seen up here.  not sure what it's doing so far from water but maybe it's none of my business.  sure has some beautiful eyes though...

tumble into infinity

we hold each other
if only we could tumble
into infinity like this
you say
and i cry
because i know
deep down
that's the only thing i want
i could let go of everything
home
money
possessions
easily
willingly
happily
but you
i don't know how to let go of you
