There must have always been foxes

around the garden homes,

rabbits crossing the morning road,

ducks playing in storm drain puddles. What else

have I not noticed? Snakes?

Martians? A medal

from the elementary school, sorely missed,

I imagine.


  1. I remember sitting very very still the year I began my “God in the Yard” journey three years ago. Over time during that practice of sitting and listening I wondered (watching leaves leap from limb to branch in the trees in our yard), “Wow, what else have I missed.”

    It’s good to be able to look up now and then.
    (Martians? probably not)

  2. “Watching leaves leap?” Where is the brain check button? “Squirrels,” not leaves. Sheesh.
