in praise of maples

I found my self waltzing 
by the wood stove
turning to enjoy 
the radiant genius
of trees

will there be snow tomorrow?

the moon rose full in the twilight
with two pans rollin' thanks to the 
limbs of the grand old red elm 
that died of thirst
last summer
another record of today  
in the taste of the 
maple syrup

Months ago my olde mac was deemed "unfit"
and was summarily dragged off the internet-
as far as posting to my blog was concerned.

Since my posts focus on current events,
discoveries and paintings as they emerge,
there have been several chapters excluded.

Having finished the first run
of maple syrup a week ago and
now that it is the first day of spring,
perhaps i will be able to mark today
as a "recomencment".
