The Tapestry of Wings Glinting in the Sunlight —- Wednesday, August 4, 2021

Common Pheasant….he is a great one to scare a person by squawking and flying up suddenly at your feet 🙂

Northern Harrier Hawk  

Hunting, hunting, hunting.

And that wonderful little nymph-like spirit


Hummingbird….riding like a wisp on the currents of our air.

Quiet Days — the Kind that Leaves No Mark, Tuesday, August 3, 2021

It’s been raining here,

Little showers of delight

Our air, ground, and souls cooling way down

Making a person think it might be Autumn

It makes me feel like Fall

Time racing forward

That summer will be over (too) fast.

Moments racing ahead…

The rain is nice, it’s actually making puddles

Still…over there — just beyond

Is Fall…


The cool down, just before

Ah, well…until then

Our days go Quietly forward…

Beneath the Stars and the Bright Lights —- Monday, August 2, 2021

So…just what does a farmer do for fun

You load up your Classic Tractor

(For some reason, I can’t get my actual pull video to show up.)

And you go to a tractor pull; whereby,

He did very well; pulling 76% of his tractor’s weight!

Moments of Beauty — Sunday, August 1, 2021

I still have not seen Mindy

I will keep looking and calling

Watching for her in the special places she loved

My heart whispers to her

I send prayers to the Heavens asking to know; for

Peace to fill my soul, if she has passed over the Rainbow Bridge

Or to somehow understand

If she is just hiding from me

Has she developed kitty dementia?

Has she had a kitty heart attack and died somewhere

and been carried off by a predator?

My voice calls, my heart whispers, and my soul cries.

Missing Mindy — Friday, July 30, 2021

I can’t find Mindy

She is missing.

She didn’t come in several nights ago for her “Mindy Time”

I can’t find her anywhere.

I’ve called, I walked the place looking for her

I put out a game camera

Trying to see if she shows up in any photos

I got this one on the 16th.

Then I moved the camera to here and got this one

But I’m not really sure it’s her.  We have a stray black cat that has shown up in the yard and it may be it.

Mindy Lou-Sue I miss you.

I hope you are alright

My heart is brimming with sadness.

The farmyard is silent in a sad and empty sort of way

I miss your wee little gifts

I miss you.

I wish I knew where you are, or what has happened to you.

I miss you, Mindy Lou-Sue, My Min-Min.

From my heart to your heart,


Why? — Thursday, July 29, 2021

“The voyage of discovery consists not of seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”–Marcel Proust

I have a snake (water snake) who lives in the hen house with the hens.  Randomly we (snake and I) scare each other.

Why would you tolerate a snake in the hen house, you ask?

This is why.

Snakes love to eat mice!

Way to go, Snake!

Before the Rain — Tuesday, July 27, 2021

Before the rain

That thing called WIND

stirred everything up

Spread the top of the soil

Here and there



After the rain…the ending of a RAINBOW!!!

A Sweet, Quiet Melody — Monday, July 26, 2021


A wee, but perfect, little snack bar

OH!  Sharing with a Robin

Here, try this little bit I plucked out of the tray just for you—something light, bright, and oh, so sweet. 🙂

From my world to your heart,
