I have spent many hours over several days on the Beaver River Wetlands Trail and have yet to encounter another human being. There are many Grackles however:
I also saw these Trumpeter Swans and heard my first Swamp Sparrow of the spring.
Shallow Things to Consider©
By Linda S. Smith (Facebok: Al-Linda Smith)
There are things to consider as the world reels in crisis
Oh, the frivolous things which beguile and entice us
No trips to Tim Hortons – No restaurant meal
No shopping at will – whenever we feel
And have you considered – as we’re home day by day
Our roots are still growing – revealing the gray
Our nails too will grow – no salon nails to show
We’ll start biting our nails – as the ugly stubs grow
There’s no bedding plants – cos the stores are all closed
No petunias, impatiens – no vines and no rose
So I’m just planting seeds – like it’s something unknown
Before we got spoiled, planting flowers full-grown
I found some yeast too – so I’m now baking bread
Kneading ten minutes – like my grandmother did
If the virus goes on – Things may just get vile
I’ll have to mend, iron and sort old paper piles
What an interesting place! Thanks again, Miles.
As to the poem–afraid to bite my nails. Washing them a lot!
