Rural Route


White birches,
or are they widows

gathered
at the well?

Dusk comes so soon.

Coffee Time and Birch Scrolls added to Penny Thoughts and Photographs.

In the Forum, another reaction to yesterday’s Birch Scrolls: “Wow. For some reason I see birds & shamans in there; specifically, as I look closer, it’s a shaman dressed in bird-garb, one arm uplifted, feathered wings rising behind him. I’m not sure what he's up to, exactly, whether it’s a healing ritual or what. Actually the shaman is located in some particularly remote region of Siberia. The day is cloudy. There might be some chanting in the background. Really, the whole scene is rather scary.”
