Haiku #26

Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

the sounds of water
cascade through me, quiet and
quite beyond compare

I made it out to Silver Falls State Park today. What an amazing morning. Beautiful. I will share more about the hike in the next installment of Willamette Valley Wanderings and Wonderings, yet just had to share this pic, and the accompanying haiku, which occured to me as I took in all of the beauty today.

tranquility is
the essence of being, as

Water, transfixed in
mind, ruminations abound
as life mirrors back.

Community Gardening: Tomatoes, Zucchini, Squash, and a Haiku

Corvallis, Oregon

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted about the community garden. All is going well. Very well, in fact.

Last week, I planted four tomato plants, and a zucchini and squash plant; and the peas are growing delightfully.

Here are some recent pics.

The indoor starts are close. I am waiting one more week, just in case we get some rain; they are still small, so a large rain would be harmful.

Here is a pic of the indoor starts.

Next?

Yep. Planting the indoor starts next week. After that? Watch and tend. Beautiful.

And, here’s a haiku I created recently as I was contemplating the garden.

watch them grow, one and
then another, roots unfold,
take hold, then? behold

another place and time, we

of nature, they mix, mingle,
