This old house
Country comfort
Modern use
Sits nestled in the hills
Beside the river gorge
(or is it just a stream?)
The history of cows
And Roses,
Charming Thurber,
Talented Simott
In an upper room.
Young marrieds and children
Moving in tandem
Making space for more.

Times were different.
The occupants fewer now.
Their history-making
In the mold
Of Rose’s garden.

Weather report
Sun streaming in my house

Temperature in the 70s
Sounds good to me.

In the car
Dark cloud hovering
just ahead.

where are you?
What do you see?
It looks like rain
to me.

The BIG number
NASA reports only 26 pieces of space junk are expected to hit earth tomorrow afternoon. If it misses North America, as now reported, should we be concerned? The impact still will be a worry to people living in other places.
