Before the Second Snowfall of the Year — Thursday, November 5, 2020

(This photo was taken just before the First Snowfall of the Year)

I decided yesterday,

I needed to go into the heart of the farm,

into the heart of the Earth;

where places of wonder exist,

places where I could forget politics

and angst

and worries.

I went off and on throughout the whole day

Looking at the crisped bushes, trees, and the fallen leaves

Gathering the heart of the Earth into my heart

Enjoying the peace

(Looking for these creatures)

The shadows

Before the predicted

High winds of Fall

(I only saw a few of these)

Are due in here of Friday

Bringing with it several days of the second snowfall of the season.

The light last night was lovely.

My favorite light—looking at the world through the color Rose.

From my world to your heart,

  1. I think you were wise. Tennyson wrote a poem called The Brook, and one of the repeated lines is “For men may come and men may go, but I go on for ever”. What was true of the Brook is doubly true of the Land. Long after the bickering politicians are gone and we are all dust, there will still be the Land.


  2. “The world is too much with us, late and soon.
    Getting and spending we lay waste our powers,
    Little we see in nature that is ours.”

    William Wordsworth 1802
