a short visit with carolyn

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 4:15 pm

Our punditry won’t be ready until after sunset and dinner,

today.  [update (9 PM): too much food, perhaps laced

with too much MSG, has left me in no condition for compo-

sition.  If the creek don’t rise, I’ll be opining here tomorrow,

so please come back.]

 

Happily, Carolyn Hall did her homework:







 


 



last of the sunlight
cows bounding
downhill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
icicles drip on the sill

   a pile of bills waiting

        to be paid

 

 

 

 

 






leaning back

in their chairs

old friends reunited

 

 











“snowflakeS”


 

 









into

the

rain-

filled

bucket

so

softly

hailstones
