remarkable things

 the sound was exquisite
friday night at helen hosmer hall
on the suny potsdam campus
 the skies this weekend weren't bad, either

 a steaming pile reminded me of that age old thing
fires in autumn
eating the debris of summer excess
 i have to stop taking these photos!
 but because i live on a hilltop
i'm forced to see these performances
 then i saw something so familiar
and so beautiful
blue beads grace this abandoned nest
a near neighbor
which does make paper
and whose name i can't find in my menopausal brain.
a little blue-making 
chemistry at my house
and then glennis sent this!!!
milkweed, twined with pine nut
on indigo and persimmon silk.
this made my heart sing!
there's a nifty little video about twining
