Cheese, a muffin, an appleturnover and a poem.

Our friend, the poet, Mary Kellogg came for a visit this afternoon.  She brought a hunk of fresh cheese, a muffin, an apple turnover and some of her new poems.  She read them to us while we drank tea and munched on the goodies.

Observation by Mary Kellogg

snow has sculpted figures of trees
in the naked forest
tracing bounds

mimics human race
lost
grasping for space
time to spend somewhere

straining for hope
fingers bending
reaching
howling  heavenward

other supine
affixed
to rotting frozen floor

only one not struggling
fluff of patience  rocks soft pine
wrists  carry bracelets of snow

  1. This is such a sweet scene. We enjoyed meeting Mary at the Old Bedlam and have both of her books of poetry. What a lovely and modest lady
    she is.(yummy treats too 🙂 )
    That looks like Rose’s sheepskin.

  2. Mary has such a sweet and beautiful face. Her goodness shines through even though I don’t know her.
