before solstice gifts

friendly birds brought
a gift to my ditch
wild columbine

over at the new place:
a door
cedar on the outside
yellow birch on the interior
hand carved handles
the stairs,
also yellow birch,
are in
and back at home
i gathered a basket
of yard gifts
lupine, lilac, buttercup, hawkweed, rosa rugosa, iris, fern
hortus siccus
to make several long sheets
the top of the pot looked like this
nothing is wasted
gabby made herself a journal
(see how she played with the corner treatments)
for her work this summer
studying with the amazing 
don glaiser and suzanne moore.
