Garden Gone

After four inches of rain last night (and more coming today) this years garden is done! The corn was about a foot and a half tall and is now underwater. After a late start from it being too wet to plant, farms in this area, have taken another beating. Many of them will not have a crop this year. With falling crop prices due to the trade war, even crops in the bins are not worth selling! So much “winning”!


Romantic Shiver

Young couples embrace
First love’s romantic shiver
In cool April rain

Beyond The Sunset
Original Acrylic Artwork By Stuart Glazer*

Listen to the thunder
Carried on endless sky
Echoing distant drum beats
Of a timpani’s rumbling cry.

A backlit edge of heaven
Charged by wind and rain
Nature’s dancing rhythm
That refused to be restrained.

A pillow is my refuge
As the storm rattles and blows.
Rain strikes the window
As I hide behind my throws.

I crave tomorrow’s sunshine
Forecasters promised me.
A day washed clean of worries
To share with family.

-Clarence Holm
