We walk in the forest,

Seth & I,

& it's the time of year

when everything's brown:

the bark of the ponderosas,

the carpet of needle & cone,

the dead grass,

certain boulders, the earth itself;

even our dog is brown

& if she didn't move about

she couldn't be distinguished

from her surroundings.

Footprints in Snow

People have walked their dogs here,

there are footprints in the snow

made by human feet, or rather

by the boots or shoes they wear,

and parallel to them,

rows of pawmarks, fore and hind,

left and right,

each dent followed by a slight drag;

some are dainty, as from a matron's yorkie,

others grand, a shepherd's,

rottweiler's, or lab's.


Off at an angle, zigzag,

A Confused Gardener Contemplates Planting by the Phases of the Moon

New moon, dark moon,

will my plants

blossom & bloom

if planted in mid-June?

Slim chance

(good cowboy name),

all the same,

give it a try,

they'll live or they'll die.

Message to the Future

Smashed glass, plastic bottles near decomposed,

aluminum cans bearing the words Pabst Blue Ribbon,

Coca-cola, Sprite, Mountain Dew,

Styrofoam scraps, once burger-holding boxes,

shreds of black bags, clinging to branches like ravens,

graffiti in bulbous script on rock walls...

some day these will be our potshards

and our petroglyphs,

our mementoes to be found by archeologists,

our culture's messages to the future:

i'm just reposting this so you see it ...

this is great, bettina, but just in the wrong place. go back down to the story and place this in the story body.....what happened here is that you opened a discussion group. click on the group tabs at the top. then click meanwhile back at the plantation group story. then you'll see where we posted......holler if you have questions! i know it gets confusing! ;-) so glad you're back!

hi bettina! Sorry I just saw your question-- you can always post things on the "blogs" section; or you can go to any of the "groups" and join and then comment all you want......for example, if you like the group about MOVIES-- (Favorite flicks discussion group), then "join", and you are able to add comments directed at anyone you want.....

good morning, bettina! it takes a little getting used to over here, i admit. i mess up alot. but nothing is unfixable. if you want to post a blog...say a poem...just go to the top and click "blog" on those horizontal tabs. click add a blog entry and then share. it's pretty simple. and you left your comment to me just fine! if you want to join in a discussion on the left, you have to join the discussion. then just post like you did here. see you soon! hope your weekend is a good one!
