Happy Birthday to Us

Well it's our 6th month blogging anniversary. We recently cracked the top 500 blogs for site traffic, and want to express our thanks to all who have visited us here, and especially to those who regularly share their comments and link to us. You make it a joy to participate in the blogosphere.

Please enjoy this poem by our friend Loie. And maybe a celebratory bone.


I lean out the barn window
on a day when the rain
is indescribably bright
and notice how the hemlock
bed down in mist
The rain floats

      small feathers of blessing.
This clearing, a feeding child
taken out of kindness.
The sky opens white.
The spoon-shaped mist
comes down like milk.
