Maple Syrup

 
A great Canadian tradition
the boiling of Maple tree sap
in the spring to make
Maple syrup!
Its not a pancake without.
This is my neighbors sugar shack,
he tapped his trees and ours
boiled and we have the liquid gold!

The fuel to boil.

The sap to boil and boil!

April Morning Atmosphere

 
 5 AM
Everything is still
fog rises off the snow that remains
April warmth
quiet comfort so serene
a view down the street
gives me  silent comfort
I begin to dream
until awakened by a call
Spring!
