Maine Coast

Today we travel to a remote portion along the Maine coastline. Megan and I will show little Gavin gorgeous scenery that he’ll not remember. He’s one. 🙂 and wicked cute.

I wanted to again invite anyone interested in joining the ‘Share Your Creative Work’ facebook page I created. It gives your blog posts more exposure.

Also, if interested, I’d like to invite you to ‘like’ my facebook writing page.

While I’m gone, please raise an adult beverage and cheers me!

New England Talking Trail – A Poem

A wooded trail in New England is different than any other-
For it speaks to you while you walk

The gray squirrels announce your arrival
while playing tag in the under brush-
The chipmunks chirp their warning
and now every woodland creature is aware-

The blue jay shrieks its boastful bellowing call of territorial command-

The wind rustles the drying leaves –
Readying themselves to drop to the ground-
They sound like evening whispers while sitting on a porch

A bend in the trail beckons you – though it is getting to be dusk-
Now the sounds of the path are darkening-
and have taken a tone of daring

Moonlight is seeping through the canopy of New England-

While you walk you hope the light of the moon will brighten the trail-
Just a bit more-
For you hear the same gray squirrels and rustling leaves-
But the squirrels are much larger now, and the whispers are no longer friendly front porch speak-
