I don’t need your praise to survive. I was here first, before you were here, before you ever planted a garden. And I’ll be here when only the sun and moon are left, and the sea, and the wide field. I will constitute the field. The Wild Iris by Louise Gluck

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very small community, but this takes work. A job well done.

We met a tourist from Ontario at the top.  A kindred spirit …goes off the beaten path.

 

Blackberries

My favourite scent…blackberry bushes in summer.

 

Ode to the Blackberry Bush

(with apologies to John Denver)

by Carol Fudge

 

You fill up my senses

with a yearning for long ago moments

like lilacs in summer

like a storm in the cove

like seagulls crying

come fill me again.

Come let me inhale you

let my mind gently wonder

let peace flow through me.

Let me walk through your bushes

let me sit down beside you

let me always remember.
Come let me touch you

come fill me again.

You fill up my senses

like newly cut grass

like the warmth of the sun

like the smell of the ocean

come fill me again.

 

 

Go… explore, go off the beaten path.
