graduation time is near and so is baptism

Actually for the school I serve at it is tomorrow. The only bad part about that is we can't leave for the Cities until Saturday. Benjamin is having his baptism on Sunday. Leona and I took Monday off so we don't have to leave Sunday night. Still will have to get on the road early and fight traffic to get out of town. Dogs will spend the weekend at the doggy motel. Hopefully that will work out. Sham is now in a cast for life. Every couple of months we will take him in and get a new one.
Benjamin is growing up so quickly as infants always seem to do. We see him one month and he is just rolling around the floor. Now he is crawling and standing. Skype is wonderful.

Here it is April

and it may snow tonight and tomorrow. Luckily the potential for
heavy snow has gone down everyday and with luck we won't get much.

late April
and still the crocus dream
beneath the snow

up with the snow and wind

Lets see - since the last time I wrote I have fallen on the steps carrying the dachshund who now has a leg in a cast. This was after we went to Minneapolis to visit Beth, Dave and Benjamin as well as Zachary. Since then just manning the Credit Recovery room at Horizons. And some writing and doodling.

Having some fun with poetry. Here is a poem.

It snows.

But not as bad as it has in Minneapolis.

More later.

It is later.

heavy snow
he remembered her
blue bikini



his breath stank of whiskey
head bent into the wind
snow snaking around his feet
this was no dream of winter
he was little more than a
white shadow in hell

This and that.

Leona and I had Saturday off. She was standing up in Miki's wedding. It was a beautiful wedding and the reception at Wadsworth was great. Leona danced all night and I danced my one customary dance. On a sad note, there was a fire in an apartment building in Hancock that killed four. There is talk that it was arson.

I saw my first bear of the year last year. We had heard one was visiting the Harbor. Thursday night coming down from checking Lake Manganese I saw a bear shaped black hole trotting down the edge of the road and then gone. I stopped and could hear him snapping things in the woods on his way to town for dinner. Hopefully he doesn't turn east and find the campgrounds.

On a publishing note. Had several published in the summer issue of Modern English Tanka. One was chosen for the back cover. Only three per issue. So I was kinda pleased.

Has it been this long? Nothing much new. Work. Writing.
