With infinite grace
he stretched his long neck
to nibble contentedly
at the winter foliage,
the few remaining leaves
on the sweet honeysuckle,
summer’s faded promise.
And whether a trick of my mind
or the rootedness
in his languid stance,
he seemed to me
a lone creature of this planet,
unhurried, unburdened, unaware.

  1. A sweetly peaceful, gentle poem and a very charming graphite drawing together. Lovely! A moment of calm in the middle of the day. 🙂

    I don’t know much about getting your writing ‘out there’, but wonder if there’s a widget on your dashboard that you can attach to your homepage to let people like me follow your blog via email–I’d certainly like to do so, but can’t figure it out from here.


    • Thank you, Kathryn! He was a gentle and peaceful creature. He walked into our yard as graceful as you please and started nibbling and I simply couldn’t resist sharing the moment. 🙂
      I will ask my husband, who is the computer genius of the family, to help me with the widget since I know next to nothing about them. I am absolutely, painfully hopeless when it comes to computers or anything technical for that matter. 😀

      • I’m horrible with technology and had to have help, but it turned out this one was fairly easy on WP, once I knew how.

        Go to your Dashboard. Select Appearances, and there will be an option for Widgets; click on Widgets. Then you look in the left hand group for Follow Blog: Follow Blog via Email, and you click on that and drag it over to the Main Sidebar box at the right of the page. That’s what worked for me, at least! 🙂
