My Soul of Maple

Oh how the warmth of your glow,
tolerates my being….
—i feel as though there remains a connection,
as we pass into fall….
—why it was only yesterday that a seed fell to ground,
much like in the beginning….
—our time together often grows weary,
as in the exiled seasons….

Can our love still survive against the onslaught,
of hurled bark insulation….
—where were it not for fire burnished passions,
coming forth as desire…..
—often translated into these my calloused hands,
for carvings and gougings….
—i also could be lost in the outer growth rings,
of playing for wood space….

Salvation comes through many works of forms,
still seeking to tell of life….
—while our forms are the increase of knowing,
that we shall yet transform….
—my heart beats within your rock maple soul,
as imploded words do cease….
—come my love and we shall tag the morning sun,
forever forgetting this kiss of death….

Beautiful words, Frank.

What mother nature gives us always returns to her.

That is some wonderful looking old barn, in the background of the second picture, have you posted other images of it?

Ah yes… woodcutting season. My back is already groaning at the site of all that firewood, Frank.

In the top picture, it looks like you’ve got a few leaves turning… we’re still all green in southern IL

The caterpillars an hour south of here are all black (hard winter), but mine are all brown with about an 1/8th inch of black on each end (hard winter at beginning and end, mild winter in the middle)... I guess I’ll have to stop using the caterpillars to judge our coming winter, huh?

Cutting wood never stops as time never seems to be without the gravity of space distortion .. or it is the other way around :)
