Finding its way into the greenness
Of spring
Oh how I long for the creeping of spring


Red Raven Retreat, MN | July 2012

It seems as if the ferns have gathered my tears
Pooled with the reflection of the sky
Let these tears nourish all things living
Let these tears inter all things that have passed

“In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things.
In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.”
~ John Fowles

New Life

Red Raven Retreat | Willow River, MN 2012

Ferns are sprouting new life in the woods.
Uncurling from their tight buds of soft downy fur.
A first leaf born from a newly sprouted stalk ~ expands.

Birth of a Fern 2010

Banning State Park | Sandstone, MN 2010

The birth of a newly formed fern
can be heard as it
rolls from its downy cocoon
tossing up its arms wide
to break free
