Austin Texas : PhotoPoem # 2 :
“Birds in a Winter Tree”
“A New Winter in an Old Winter Haunt”
the black raven-winged bird, still plump
from the past seasons’ fullness
nipped at the winter twigs
knobs and nubs and where
a favored berry
the other birds nearby, not nearly
as plump, not nearly as
of where treasures of thrown trash –
barely eaten burgers, a few
were hidden, but easily found
nipped at every change of light on each branch
the old bird chuckled and cawed quietly
if they ask, he thought, i’ll tell them
if not, they’ll find their own
that’s what he did
nearly starved that one winter
until the walking creatures opened a new
taco stand nearby –
yes, he thought, nature provides….

Getting Back to Healthy – Yes, It’s a Process 😉
going from teaching 2 to 5 fitness classes per week, through to the end of oct last year, then traveling to stowe, paris, houston, and back here in austin, even with doing daily walks, and intermittent chair based exercise sets, plus getting sick! has left sheila and myself at a point where, resuming a more daily chair based routine, and including weights, elastic bands, etc, has been a reminder how much the body needs to be worked to stay in fluid enjoyable order 😉
my next post, barring the usual unknowns, is to do a fitness review –
as much for sheila and myself as anyone interested 😉
stay healthy and happy everyone!
blessings everyone 😉

For a Texas guy like me, this was a marvel of an experience. There’d been this one red berry bush that’d survived all winter, and one day, mid-morning, first one, then two, then the rest of the group of Robins appeared, and ate every single visible berry from sight, lol!
