The long evenings have arrived! Watch out for the hares, they are never far at this time!
This picture was taken looking out an Island Eddy which apparently has lots of hares, did they swim there?!
little excerpt from an old piece about hares I wrote when I was immobilized after a knee operation, I planted myself at the back step and watched them come and go!
Will it rain, what’s the right action?
before I consult the cards you vanish
quick as a breath
over the stream and into the willow
leaving my destiny up to me.
Second coffee on the second day
we meet again
somehow I’m meddling in your world
but in the split second of
my mindless thoughts, your steady grace
our rhythms mingle…….
