The Cosmos

The moon appears -new, waning or waxing. The stars are plentiful, and unchanging. The earth rolls around to meet the sun. There is wind coursing over the earth, and stillness, and blue sky and grey. Precipitation arrives then departs, a party to deep cold and surprising warmth. A blanket of snow withers over the tawny, textured padding of leaves. Squirrels navigate vertical and horizontal, white tail deer arrive unannounced, birds prefer early but often stay late, and coyotes call out at night.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
