Communing With Rope

Spring almost summer
in this Maine coastal town:

blooming rope


I didn't need rope, but this display made me wish I did. I stood there for a long time admiring the colors, wondering what I might use some for.  I couldn't decide.

When I joined my husband at the checkout, I saw that he had chosen a length of red and yellow rope.  

"What's it for?"

"Dunno.  Something."

Love that length of rope. Not sure why.

Communing With the Birds

At our last house
a squirrel visited each morning
pausing to check out what I was doing

Here in Maine
a bright red cardinal visits

such a beautiful flash of brilliance
against all the lush green.
