Slavic Sentinel

An image visited last night,

Reminding of a phantom,

Like some Slavic sentinel--

One without a gun...

Bit of Change

If I had a bit of change for every time I wanted,

Eventually, a rich old age I'd reach to live undaunted

By the need of daily life, by the daily grind--

Challanges very real, but also in my mind...

An adventure filled avenue?

Crafted columns with filigree

Watch enough seasons, for reasons explainable

Only from those who take time

To knowingly stake, or rake smooth in trying,

A claim on a mound or a line...

Closely following footsteps,

From other countless journeys,

Along a lone path...

Gentle Snows

Gentle snows slowly drape the undulating landscape,

Revealing infinite frozen form,

 As blankets keep the ground warm...
