Those Winter Sundays

Untitled
Those Winter Sundays~Robert Hayden~

Sundays too my father got up early
and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,
then with cracked hands that ached
from labor in the weekday weather made
banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.

I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking.
When the rooms were warm, he’d call,
and slowly I would rise and dress,
fearing the chronic angers of that house,

Speaking indifferently to him,
who had driven out the cold
and polished my good shoes as well.
What did I know, what did I know
of love’s austere and lonely offices?

I found this poem and now am wrecked for the rest of the evening.

Mrs. Zhivago takes the dog out

Mrs. Zhavago takes the dog out
And now an excerpt from the acclaimed Russian novel, War and Pee.
“Surely, Zaichik, you need to make peepee on the snow! Come, my little Malish…peepee for Mamushka. Now now, molodoy chelovek, I insist on the peepee! You are a bad little kotyonok, out here in all this snow. Mamushka is getting cold. Hurry for Mamushka! Peepee little zaichik, do it!”

The Land of Grauland

The Land of Grauland
I sit on the land of Grauland
Where the scenery changes and it’s all sand
Lots of cubes and holes and high land!
It’s good for shots, it’s good to take cover.

Catching a ride home for the holidays, traveling in the snow. Listening to Jim Croce on the car radio and thinking about how things could have been different.

Paper UFO

Paper UFO
There is always something new to see at Walsh County. I climbed the big hill so I could show you the new sledding sign. But, I got distracted by something I always see when I go to the County. See that thing in the upper right of my pic? It’s a paper airplane. With lights. And one day several weeks (months? who can tell) ago, I was at WC and I touched something on the ground. This paper airplane flew up and flew over my head, around and up and back, while I was walking around on the land. When I left, it disappeared. But where I came back, there it was again! It is so fast and zippy, I could barely get a shot of it! I sometimes think I should contact those creative Walsh County folks and ask how I can get rid of the ufo. But then, I think that it’s just another special thing about that place, and it’s like of like it’s just for me.

King of the Highland Cattle

King of the Highland Cattle
He told me his name was Wellington…Wellington de Bourguignon. I herd him before I saw him. And when we met, I was enchanted! Enchanted enough with his moo-ellow voice and horns a’plenty to join him in a bovine ballad. A Highland fling. A beefy beat. It was thrilling! Afterwards, I left. But before I did there were promises made to sing again, to sing the song of his people, Wellington de Bourguignon, King of the Highland Cattle.

On the edge of a painting

On the edge of a painting
When life looks like a painting, you wonder what’s real and what isn’t. Are you the creator or the creation? The maker or the made? The painter or the painting? Hard to say. When life looks like a painting.
