October Buddies

 



In June, Pooka and I walked beneath the apricot tree in Cresent Bay. Yesterday, Ah, Friday, we wondered again around our favorite walk. This collage includes the June poster and October photos of Pooka, Best Buddy.

Just the high path
For today;

Gleaming lowly
Just a short pause
Stop to say

Rest dog
Lay down slowly
Just a short walk
On this day.

Dance Your Heart Out

The beater poised up
Drummers' eyes lock
Lead drummer nods
His beater drops.

Dancers watch
Ears tuned in
Feet ever-light
The beater drops.

Drummers join beats
Song echoes --sweet
Memories flow
All beaters drop.

Regalia flows
Fluid with grace
Dance with the beat
Dancers' feet hop.

Drum and dance
Honor the past
Elders' wish
Dances won't stop.

Drum and dance
Sing the future
Sing for Elders
Dance, dance nonstop.

Things to check
Do it, please?
We need stuff.

Ah, Friday...

During this summer, I enjoyed the sharing photos with my PLN for Paula Naugle and Barbara N's JJA Project: A picture a day for the summer. It was wonderful seeing golf balls at weddings, herb gardens, grandchildren, artsy shots, flowers, insects, etc. We learned tips and tricks of photo work as well as getting to know each other. Although we may have missed a day or two, our group of thirty-four have shared, described, and commented on almost a thousand photos! Thanks to the group for sharing and extending our PLN world view.

Now that the summer has passed, our eyes still see great shots, our fingers itch to snap that scene, and our minds wonder what our buddies see today. Once a connection of sharing is made, it's hard to let go. So one of our group, Denise Krebs, invites us to #FotoFriday, a great way to extend our shutter sharing.

Snap a pic or upload a pic on Friday of each week. Since most of us are teachers, and many FotoFridays already exist, how about we tweet the pics as #TFotoFri ?

Please join us for another round of sharing on Ah...Friday!

Today, Friday, September 9th, my husband, Pooka our dog, and I found a cool spot to relax in the nearly 100° heat:


Looking forward to Fridays! Hope to see you 'round in one shot or another! Let's accept Denise's invitation to share what " keeps my [your]  head spinning and my [your] shutter snapping these days."

Will you accept the invitation?

Waving Cattails


video

I am wind whispering in your ear
I am cattails waving that you pass
I am red-winged blackbird chirping your presence
I am damselfly dashing here and there
I am waves breaking onto sandy shore
I am water-skippers flitting back and forth
I am minnows scattering at any move
I am carp browsing the water's edge
I am pondweed stretching up and up
I am cottonwood shading over
I am turtle peeking "Who are you?"
I am kayaker enjoying the view.

Turn Around

Turn around from the end of the road to find the way through.

When times are tough,
with no way out,
turn around,
and look about:

The end of the road
Will change from view
And you will find
a new way through.

Life will find a way-
A road has gone away;
Another path begun
In asphalt split, undone;
Plants stretch anew
Reach and bloom through
Til a road once travelled
Becomes a garden in gravel.

Driving in for Pooka's walk
I looked up and had to stop;
There I saw these two pine trees
Ponderosas, in the breeze.

At the edge of a cliff
Where a fall could harm
The two pines stand
Arm in arm.

One tree hugging
It's arm holding tight
Holding it's brother
From a fall of fright.

Holding up
Held together
Hugging safe
Together, Forever.
