Good Morning 12/30/21

Good morning from Williams, MN, near Lake of the Woods! I’ve shoveled out our never-ending driveway three times in as many days. It’s 20 degrees below zero right now, and we’re expecting 30 below by tomorrow night. This place is not for the faint of heart!

On the other hand, the nature and wildlife photography opportunities here are unrivaled. There are so many deer, that almost every vehicle around here has a headlight out. And all of that roadkill brings out eagles, hawks, magpies, wolves, fox, and of course, the ubiquitous crows. Have a warm day!!

lost soul

i awoke

in an old, abandoned school;

i didn’t

recognize the building itself,

but the old wooden floors

seemed oddly familiar.

i called

out for a teacher to help,

any teacher,

but they’d left long ago–

and i am yet a fool.

i walked

down a road, unpaved;.

i didn’t

recognize the road itself,

but i knew i’d been there.

i called

out for a god to help,

any god,

but they’d left long ago–

and i am yet unsaved.
