yesterday morning
i could hear woodpeckers
but i couldn’t see them
there are rainbows in my heart
and my mind feels like glass

the wind’s high in the trees
sky is blue
there are early spring flowers coming up already in my hometown
a wee patch of snowdrops
buttercups 
it’s not even valentine’s day yet 
what happens when there is no winter?
does it not also mean that there is no spring, summer, or fall? 

i am dancing at the edge
twinkle lights and lit christmas trees & garland
even porch lights and lamps look like
holiday lights suspended in this fog

green sage

stayed green all winter
against all odds
reminds me of

gratitude is healing
i’m trying to take my treatment

put myself outside
to get washed in the rain

driving to petrolia
hills trees coast fog

“There’s really kind of an epidemic of roadless logging in both New Hampshire and Vermont, in the White Mountain and Green Mountain National Forests,” says Zack Porter of Standing Trees. “Many thousands of acres at this point have been targeted. And many miles of roads have been punched into some of the wildest landscapes that we have in New England.”
