Seedlings and Trees – Green and Ice

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Crackle Apple” – Whitney Avenue/Hamnett Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – This photo has a companion – Blueberry Ice – Didn’t exactly make this cut… Maybe I’ll use it in another ice poem…

A child is a seedling…
A grown up is a tree…
Somewhere in the middle…
Is just little old me…

Sitting here in the snow…
Thinking with my fragile soul…
Considering all the little shit…
That combines to make me whole…

Don’t sweat the small stuff…
Walk softly and carry a big stick…
When given your own choice…
Always build with bricks…

Brick stands the test of time…
Icy snows and gusty flows…
Be the structure standing tall…
When the cold wind blows…

Be the mighty wind…
Be the mighty tree…
Sometimes you just have to be…
Whatever sets you free…

“Green on Ice” – Hamnett Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – I don’t normally get excited at the sight of grass… Against the white of the snow… And the grey of the sky… It was electric to my eyes…

Today… I was brought to my knees at the sight of the color green… I spent my day shoveling out apartments… Towards the end of the day I ran off a sidewalk and into the grass… Now you have to understand… I was 6 hours into one of the nastiest days I have ever experienced… I was drenched… Freezing… And standing in slush… Surrounded in fog under a nasty gray sky… Then I saw green… Then I saw spring… I dropped to my knees… Pulled out my camera… And snapped this photo… I just had to share it… This photo spawned this entire post…

Late Bloomer

"Late Bloomer Against the Blue" - December 2013 - Jeanette Street - Wilkinsburg, PA

“Dandelion Against December Blue” – December 2013 – Jeanette Street – Wilkinsburg, PA

A little bit of seed and a whole lotta love…
Blessings of rain from the heavens above…
Gray sky suddenly gives way to the blue…
Enjoying a moment in this garden with you…
Yellow flowers grace an expanse of green…
Dandelion sunshine fills the gaps between…
Sunlight and water on soil and grass…
Always remember this rain will pass…

Ashes to Ashes – In God I Trust

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Ashes to Ashes” – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA – Summer 2013

Set out across the winter landscape…
Among the skeletons of sleeping trees…
Gracefully striding in leaps and bounds…
Silent night among the sleepy sounds…

Steady mind for the journey ahead…
Better things to do than lay in bed…
The evening shadows creep and crawl…
Occasional bursts of white snowfall…

Grace the path to promised lands…
Take a breath and raise your hands…
Heaven is the land in front of our eyes…
Expect the unexpected occasional surprise…

To creep on up when you think your down…
Raindrop flood and we eventually drown…
These same drops make my garden grow…
Combine with sun to get a full rainbow…

“Dust to Dust” – Tennis Way – Wilkinsburg, PA – Fall 2013

Another week back to the steady grind…
Take a day off and see what you find…
Works not meant to consume our life…
Shouldn’t be the object of constant strife…

The days get shorter than the night is long…
A lack of birds means a lack of song…
Too many clothes to feel the cold air…
Not enough sunlight to really even care…

Waiting for spring so my gardens grow…
Flowers bloom and sunshine flows…
With our hands we draw and render…
Garden dreams and paradise splendor…

Heaven is a garden on physical land…
Sown in our minds but created by hand…
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust…
God and nature are the only things I trust…
