A Morning Call


Another grey and rainy day

Rivers and lakes running above flood stages
With more rain forecasted
Trees are standing lush and full
Our green grass is ten foot tall!

Morning sun peeks out among
Dark rain clouds
Out over shadows
Framing just a small corner
Of these Ozark eastern skies!

Through these timbered woods
Echoes sound out loudly
And suddenly
This morning’s silence
Is broken and gives way
To our neighborly Canada Geese calls
Awake now and flying out
Over the cove’s high waters
Toward the dam site!

Our Grey Ozark squirrels
Playfully scampering about
And sitting out
On their favorite
Oak tree-top porch
Where is my morning tea?

  1. More rain on the way! But maybe next week a break in the weather pattern – and we will be hot and steamy then! Our lake is up and they are generating at the dam – more water coiming in from the White River and Beaver – so it will be a while till it levels back to normal.
    My garden has run wild – I need to get out there and try to tame it a bit – might need a machete!
    Have a lovely day – can you believe June is on our doorstep!
