pinkity, porkity piglets

drowsy pre-sow sisters in the tickle-brown dust

on a lovely evening the american songbook shone

in the able hands of bill shontz and cliff rey
at the corner of high and main.

our town library (brooks memorial)

is getting her nose powdered this summer
(for clueless and slim: this is a side view)

meet roger haydock

who led a group (ages 7 to 70+) on a laurel walk for his 60th birthday
what did you/will you do on your 60th birthday?

alley way

an art gallery, a theater,
a large public deck, a river view, apartments and offices
spoke off from this tiny hub

once this church held services,

now it holds a family of stained-glass artists who bend lead and light
and create glass worlds of wonder
the artists are named rick neumann and liza king.
if you have a few moments you might enjoy looking at some of their work

that splashed and sang

a funny question, i suppose,
but tell me where you wash your clothes?

the hammock on a hummock in ronnie's verdant garden

cue a soft breeze

(it's been hot in brattleboro the last couple of day, about 90 degrees fahrenheit)

for j.m.: a close-up of the horses

these horses are the work
of joe fichter.
hope this satisfies your curiosity, j.m.

(and for those of you wondering about the funny lawn...
it is a living sculpture and has been in place for at least 20 years.)

a sparrow

danced and dallied here
and sang to her reflection.

once the train station

now a place of inspiration

down at the marina

these children romped in the giant chair

the will to live

what makes this tree set root in chimney mortar?
why would it hold on through pounding rains and winds and blizzards?
how does it survive on a diet of dew and air?

the whetstone brook dives headfirst

into gravity's insatiable pocket

ants savor the taste of peony honey

tickling the buds until they open their petals and laugh.

would you go fishing with these people?

and if you did, what do you suppose you might catch?

Friday, June 11, 2010

even in the rain

ronnie's garden
is a place of
earthly (and earthy) delights

any port in a storm

when rough weather approaches
may you all reach home safely and tie up nice and snug

sometimes it's good to

contemplate the alchemy
of imperfection

busy little bee

spreading rumors through the neighborhood.
what do you suppose he's whispering into those tender ears?

Sunday, June 6, 2010

after the heifers strolled down main street

mites mounted mini mountains
lambs lounged in lovely laps
calves cooled off on the common.

it was a great year maybe you'll join us

for sharoni, in a gray pocket of england

tangible sunshine, like friendship,

is simply golden

Friday, June 4, 2010

you've got mail

the old fashioned way

Thursday, June 3, 2010

it's true...i do kiss better than i cook

but perhaps i could improve my culinary skills
if someone would just give me a hand
(or an arm, or a leg, or even a mouth)...
