Between the Branches

There’s a red Maple tree in our yard, and it’s only now, when the cold pre-winter winds have forced it to she’d its leaves, do you see the bird’s nest in between the naked branches.


Baby Bird


This little baby bird was found today outside of it’s nest in our back yard

Huddled on the ground
Until I find the courage
To get up and fly.

You did not see me 

Hiding in the water there,

But I can see you.

My son calls this little guy Calm, because he can sit by the pond and talk to him.  Calm does not like me, so this is as close as I get… with the zoom on my camera.  

Beauty Everywhere 

I try to look for beauty everywhere, in in places you wouldn’t always find it.  Little little guy fluttered by me at the gas station and landed on the concrete near my car.  🙂
