Moon and stars are crisp
It will be cold tomorrow
Beaver slaps his tail

Beaver Love

I have always fancied a beaver me, but: I have this fear, as I live in a log cabin 
Out to town to get my groceries and coming home to find my house flattened

In the wee hours of early dawn
Beaver moon was shining upon
Spreading her earnest radiance 
On the lake that was calm
Her shimmer was silvery bright
Transforming darkness into light
Spilling her numinous beams
She brought so much insight

Premium Member The Great North Woods
Glaciers moved with determined strength 
in their destinies, pushing and upheaving
boulders large beyond belief
and whatever else stood in their paths
while coursing over and through the earth's crust
scraping into creation a landscape
of mountains, cliffs, valleys, moraines,
dumlins, eskers and notches,
kettle lakes, cirques...Read More

pink catkins
of eastern cottonwood-

beaver waits patiently

Premium Member Thoughts Drifting Into Night's Allure

A cool breeze taunts the open window
teases the hairs on my arms
curbs the fervor of my delusions
riffles through my insanity
cajoles me into a distant gaze
thoughts drifting into night’s allure.

“Would we be loveless without that moon?” 
deprived of its slow motion...Read More

Trapper's Fears
Small train of pack horses walking slow,
five of them, to be precise,
on the shore of this rock-choked river,
opposite where I make my way.

Led by three men wearing buckskin,
one is Injun, must be their guide,
must’ve married into the tribe
or they wouldn’t...Read More

They hunted with valor and hope
They proceeded with a dose of good Knightly sass
They chased it with tackle and rope

Three Turtle Songs

Turtle by the Door

The bears and wolves are few;
one threadbare widow mourning,
two grays as consumptive as smoke.
The large dwindle,
their bodies grow more awkward,
more at odds.
The heavier beasts sway
like drunks in the scant woods.
Under a pelting dark they come.
Beneath a stabbing...Read More

Christmas Eve was coming
There was plenty to be done
There were protocols to follow
There were programs to be run

Elves had duties of their own

They could call Christmas in by phone

Premium Member I live in the woods
I live in the woods.
A forest.
Much of it is untouched.
Humans have not been in it for hundreds of years.
Habitat for the wild ones.
We have seen groundhog, beaver, raccoons, opossums, fox, mink,
turtle, squirrel, bunny, deer, fox, and now wolves.

Premium Member Untouched by Man

Deep in the wilderness lies a hidden lake
Fed by a stream from high on the mountain
Water cold, deep and crystal clear…
Untouched by man
Here lives the deer, the fox, the bear
Glass reflecting the proud eagle’s flight
The minnow, the trout, the beaver….
Untouched...Read More

Beside a babbling brook I browse
By a bridge braving bleak winters breeze
Beaver is busily burrowing beneath 
Before bitter blizzards batter beaver’s bunker
Beaver beavering as he barricades the breach

Bedtime beckons before darkness befalls, but my
Bright my blue backpack bounces into the...Read More

Ghosts of the High Rockies, Part I
Eamon heard the rocks skitter away,
scree tumbling down with his every step,
descending from towering Mount Gilborne,
to a lake below where he could rest.

He knew a spot to set up his new tent,
where the conifers came down to the shore,

The Wolf
One day, a wolf sat,
By a babbling brook,
Awaiting a tasty snack.
He spotted a beaver,
His teeth, they cleaved her
Then by hungry bear, he was attacked;
Now he’s in Heaven without his pack....Read More
