Nature in Sight – 2014 Calendar

I have designed and created a 2014 Calendar from some of the artwork and writing I have posted here over the past few years, reflecting on weather, flowers, insects, birds & animals.

It is a premium full-color calendar printed on heavier weight paper, spiral bound at the top, and quite large, measuring 13.5′ x 19″.

You can preview all twelve months at, where it is available for purchase.

It would make a great gift for Christmas, or any upcoming occasion, or just for yourself!

Thank you, as always, for your interest and support.

Happy September to all!

Repost: Drought

A repost from last August – with the preparation of my novel for publication (almost there!) I haven’t had time to write for my blog. An even worse drought is affecting my area and much of the US this year, so I thought this poem was appropriate. Hope to be posting something new very soon! Thanks for your patience.

for the rain
there is
a pain
of thirst
in the eyes
and sighs
of the beholders.

on the dryness
there is
a deafness
to cries
for a break
and stake
in the weather.

through the storm
there is
a swarm
of being
for the birds
and words
of an awakening.
