About Me

My photo
My wife and I have known each other since the 10th grade and we have 2 children. We've been married over half our lives, I can't imagine it any other way.

Red cardinal resting
On the twisted branch
Of the overgrown evergreen that hides
My neighbor’s garage.

Framed with frost
On my window,
He calls
Into the soft blue rhythm
Of falling snow
On this Sunday morning,
Reminding the pines
That the days of summer hide
In the dust of our memories.

His pointed head tilts
Side to side
As he celebrates the rising
His chattering drowns
His hunger.

Spreading his wings,
Small avalanches fall
From the branch
When he lifts into the air
In search of summer
And cracked corn.
