Home

elevation changes
blue mountains
rushing water
wildflowers
moss covered rocks

sunrise over the mountain
and disappearing on the other side
family gathered in the kitchen
rocking on the porch
watching the traffic go by

only seeing your neighbors at the grocery store
but knowing they are nearby 
if you need them
old friends at the funeral home
cars stopping in respect

march flowers and tulips at the mailbox
reminders of past generations
dusty gravel driveway
rhodys shiny leaves
hemlock tiny cones

walking trails
rock piles marking land corners
bright tape marking house sites
history and hope of  
past and future generations
