Early Morning Snapshot

Early Morning Snapshot

There was just a slight film
Of ice on the birdbath
Evidence of exposure to
A cold snap overnight
From the fog covered window
of my dark room I wipe a
small aperture from which
to view the depth of the field
beyond the fence
as I watch a cardinal bursts from
the bare branches of an
old oak tree in a flash of red

I chose photography

After The Fall

The yellow brick road is

Full of weeds

No one believes in the

Wonderful Wizard or

His magic any longer

Glenda and the Wicked

Witch have opened a

Cafe in downtown Oz

Dorothy has abandoned

Her ruby slippers and

Started a rescue farm

For Flying Monkeys

Only Toto remembers

The way home
