A simple poem for early spring

brown-waters

Today she decided to change

To let loose of her winter snow

To free herself from the weight of

The white blanket oppressing her

 

She burst forth in a brown fury

A fiery rage of churning waters

Pouring forth from her hillsides

Stripping the slopes naked

Exposing the truth of the land

 

Clear light replaces her heavy load

She breaths softly and cries out

In songs of birds and frogs and rushing rivers

Exulting in the buoyancy of land

She dances in her newfound freedom.

  2. Gin,

    I discovered your blog in Feb. and have really been blessed by it since. Both the good and not so good of our life experiences. Thanks for sharing your views on life. It has helped me in my life.

    A fishing buddy and I spend about two weeks in Sept. of each year fishing the Rio Grande headwaters in your area, and we have seen your ranch from a distance from above. We stay at Little Squaw and have really come to love your spot in God’s creation.

    Mind if I stop by in Sept. and say hello?

    God Bless.

    Al

  3. Al, thanks very much for your note. We’d love to have you stop in this September. Please do – just drive up and in, the gate is often closed because of our horses running about, but never locked.
