east of the Rockies

Novica Give Away!

upon a small limb

a nest made of lichen and gossamer spider webs

a tiny humming bird

tiny beaks 
peck and peck

two babies are born

the nest is made of gossamer spider webs
so that it can stretch as the babies grow

Summer's Embrace

dancing waters
mingle with shadow and light

along the shore, wild columbines:

Summer fills our days and nights
