The Ripples in Life

Its the ripples
That send you to the life
You accept
Have your paddle at the ready
Just in case your ripple
Sends you upon the rocks
Ripples run free
with no determination
Its your paddle
JE Ted Gardner

Even The Darkest Night Will End
And The Sun Will Rise

A Rose Passed On

The Rose
The consummate sign of love
Why is it
that I always find so much
interest in the cut Rose last days
The bouquet a week old
always peeks my photographic
So much more to see
or maybe I'm just a bit off kilter?

A Longing

A Longing
to be in our garden again.
Rich smell of earth
and a fight to keep fingernails clean
Fresh Garden greens
Colour as far as the eye can see
Our yard so full of life...
Alas its the middle of a long winter
Snow banks cover what's to come
patience is the word.

Lost & Found

If you have lost a pair
of glasses
They now reside in an alder tree
beside the hiking path
at the Wilson Falls trail
east side of the dam

Fire & Ice 2017

A winter festival
that includes making a large
part of our main street
a toboggan run .
another title here
could have been
"That's enough, I'm done!"



"That's it!, I'm out of here"

Winter Plumage

American Goldfinch
In winter plumage
gone are the males bright yellow jacket
with little black cap
Now they dress like the ladies
Still there is much beauty in those winter coats
