you must drink rain water from your wine goblet,
sip duckgrass stew from the soup tureen,
sit attentively on cushions of mint and clover,
and never turn your back on the dormouse.

wild animals repose
birds perch within victorian folding screens
ships of glass sail on seas of sunlight.

musicians, poets, and pretenders,
all have passed this way.
lightning struck the stone steeple,
leaving a blackened scar.
no one prays here anymore...
unless you count the girl in her peasant skirt longing
for an invitation to dance.

a pervert subject to criminal action,
or something else all together?

a package too beautiful to open.
but i did open it to find...
sandy also brought a 'tick kit' because the little buggers frequently
hitch a ride home with me from the woods.
inside the little jar: ordinary dish soap.
instructions: saturate a cotton ball with said soap,
hold it on top of the burrowing tick for 15 seconds,
remove cotton ball...the tick should come away with it.
now can you think of two more thoughtful hospitality gifts?

the marina, a favorite among locals and guests,
after a devastating fire one year ago
rises from her ashes
like a phoenix.
