About Me

My photo
I am a mother, a teacher, and a nature lover. I grew up on a mountain we called Owls' Knob in the Ozarks of Arkansas. The first seven years of my life were spent living in a log cabin, far from a store or streetlight, without electricity or running water and after twenty years of travel, I returned to the abondoned homestead. Now I live on a hill by a small lake and work at a public garden. These are stories about nature written from a women deeply influenced by place.

Sparrow's Song

Yesterday, the night's rain lingered,
And the dawn's fog painted the morning grey.
Before noon, sun beams cut through the gloom.
Instantly, the chipping sparrows chirped to the day.
