The fairy ring showed up yesterday. Last year it erupted on August 20, only it went unrecognized as a ring because of its size. This year the entire circle is obvious, tethered as it is to the sycamore tree.

The radius is longer than the tape measure, so a girl has to do math and calculations involving pi. πŸ€“The circumference is just over 84 feet.

There is marjoram and thyme growing nearby, but the ring’s inner sanctum is not to be traversed. A girl who is already prone to exhaustive dancing has to draw the line somewhere. There are principles to be upheld. 🧚🏼

The morning walk into the midst led to this:

A magic moment that can’t be dismissed,

Or maybe it could, but why

miss water becoming sky?





Back to water sky flows.

Will it be missed?

Will it be mist?

Will it be in the midst

of another intersection in the mist?

“…talent is no more than a clarity of doing, an embodied moment where spirit and hand are one.”

Mark Nepo

Because it’s October 1st and there’s a full moon and life should be celebrated!

Look about you at the little things that run the earth.

~E.O. Wilson

Writing Spider


I caught this little guy snoozing on the job in the garden. I mistook him for dead just laying there as he was with his feet kicked back and his head hanging off the edge of the marigold’s bloom. When he heard my phone snap his picture he woke up and buzzed back to work.

Sleepy bee


Don’t sleep lightly

Sleep very tightly

Happy slumbers to you.

–Winnie the Pooh

All the water that will ever be is, right now.

Rainbow Anonymous water fueling rainbows in the Memphis sky



There are not enough lips to utter
All your fleeting names, O water

I would have to say them in every tongue
Pronouncing all the vowels at once
