Rocks Rock


Rocks rock
and it's a good thing I think that


because they surround us


Those we can lift
we often rearrange


Some gather in piles alongside
nurseries of baby spruce and tamarack


Meanwhile back at the ranch....
I'm trying to find a home


for a shibori sun


and a tiny piece of wedding dress.

  1. We love rocks. Using them in our landscape projects is only natural to us and are forever moving them just a little as they sink slowly into the ground. There must be some significance to this love. I'll have to think about that.

  2. and I miss rocks..I'm from the Hudson Valley region of NY where the locals raised rock wall building to a high art. Here on the Piedmont in Georgia a big rock in the yard is a big deal! We have one really impressive rock, Stone Mountain, and that's about it. People actually pay landscaping companies to bring big decorative rocks to their land.

    1. Oh, yes, Deb they build dry rock walls here too. But you have other wonderful advantages down there in Georgia.

  6. I carry rocks home from trips or walks on the beach. We are in basalt country - tall pillars of molten rock. They lack the beautiful lichen and moss that you find in a more humid environment. Thanks for the gorgeous photos. The shibori sun is gorgeous.
