Smoky Mountain Rain





Smoky Mountain rain, fresh and clean, driven through the cracks and crevices



of the cold crystalline aquifers in the deepest dark far below our warm, sunny world.



This precious resource filled up the gargantuan canyons of Earth’s oceans eons ago;



long before we humans strutted the stage of creation.



It was and is the source of all life, a…

What If?

‘Big men’ come and swoop down upon us



like hawks diving down on cowed, helpless mice.





They come, whether we want them to or not,



like bad weather or other natural disasters.





What if ‘big men’ didn’t come,



staying away and left us free and unmolested?…

Sweet Surprise

A riot, an explosion, a conflagration of colors;



Spread across the land according to the laws of the Creator.





Brilliant yellows, dark forest greens, gentle pinks, and dazzling whites;



A collage of colors burst forth from the earth.





Every spring, life comes springing up like a colorful…

"Real Nascar" - What I'm reading now

"Real Nascar; White Lightning, Red Clay and Big Bill France" by Dan Pierce is a great history of Nascar. I've never been to a race but I've heard so much about Nascar that I had to read about it.

Vigilant Gray Cat


Tree swallows, Blue birds, and little Finches hop around;
A couple of Starlings fighting at a feeder.
While under them, hiding, hungry in the grass;
A vigilant gray cat waits for his chance.
