Spring Ice


the sun came out


inspired a walkabout


this creek was found


cloaked in bijou of ice


and
sang a song
of bubbles and flowing waters
dressed in soft light

Spring Walk with Lucy


our eyes were on the ground a lot
me on rocks

Lucy and I on tracks


of wolf
and
elk
 

also deer


we saw our first butterflies of the year



such beauties all


and every pond of water


found Lucy wading through


and every pile of snow
a place to rest as well


tiny details to behold


looks like plants withing a rock


a spring walk
 

on a beautiful day

Early Spring


meadows of snow
turn to creeks and lakes


along edges artful ice bathed in shadow


and sunlight


colors and shapes
reflections that dance


colored by last autumns grass

 and shadows
grace ongoing snow

Spring is a SLOW slow dance in NW Montana


first day of spring
half way to the longest day of sunlight


woke to fresh snow


though spring is here
winter lingers with farewells


to
this side of the world
Happy Spring
to
the other
Happy Autumn!

Blue Skies....


it was a blue skied day
so i took to the road
to visit snow capped mountains


converse with aspen birch and pine
dressed in sunlight and shadows
to meet with subtle yet true signs of spring


to listen to the songs of creeks river and lapping lake 
along the rock adorned shore


the sort of day that enhances spirit


opens the heart


to the breath of life

it was a blue skied sunshiny day

North Fork, Montana


 the charming cabin i called home for 3 days


 found a nest with eggs made of snow 


north west entrance to Glacier National Park, Rocky Mountains

 afternoon above


 frosty morning and frozen river


 skiing along the steaming river, mighty cold at -10F/-26C
twas even colder during the night


 shadows were long


 and gray blue


this week, one day
the snow fell in the shape of stars
captured on Lucy's fur
(Lucy is a dog)

i love it when snow falls in the shape of stars
