brattcat's on the prowl again

hobble here, wobble there
i feel like a newborn kid

i'll be away for a few days
meeting up with some CDPB friends in boston.
can't wait.

whispered the twin daffodils
brought by sandie right after my accident

the arrival of spring can no longer be doubted
when geese start honking overhead

steam rising from the evaporator stiffens the clothes
but sweetens the lips

our breath usually vanishes

instantly, we exhale and...poof.
but the breath captured inside this ball has swirled in its plastic cocoon
through an entire winter

if ice melts in the forest

and no one is there to hear it
does it still go 'drip, drip, drip'?

each stone could tell

of the farmer's hand, of his scent,
of the sound of his breath whistling in his nostrils,
of the way he straightened when he heard his wife
coming toward him through the spring woods

i want to thank you all for sticking with me through these archived images.
i'm definitely improving but i don't know when i'll be able to get out and shoot fresh photos.
please know that your comments are all so appreciated.
some of you make me laugh, some of you make me blush,
some of you do both ( :

in winter, while balancing on a milk can,

does farm equipment dream
of turning fields of green?

this little blue addition peeks shyly out, yearning to be appreciated

as hard frost rises through the warming earth


lifts its ham-handed extremities

to paint tires and boots a slurpy brown

the deep gears of the farm

begin the slow shift toward spring

this old house thursday: white ark

if you're quiet you can hear the family inside padding around in their stocking feet

no padding around for me (though i am in stocking feet).
the healing has been slow, the pain ferocious
but your comments, your kindness, your humor, your images motivate me to hobble
to the computer each day. thank you!

this wee brook prances and cavorts through town.

who needs to walk when you can eat sharon myers' carrot cake?

thank goodness i was still on my feet the day of this party.
if, right now, i could eat the food served that evening,
i would be floating on a cloud of gustatory ecstasy

leading up the hushed stairway of snow into a loft of white dreams
