The Thunder Moon

July’s full moon, often called the Buck or Thunder moon, rises early over our homestead in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington State.

The full moon lives up to its name with constant thunderstorms that rumble over the highlands every afternoon. And recently we’ve spotted a young buck down by the pond.

Cheers to long summer days and mesmerizing summer nights under the Thunder Moon!

Poetry ~ September


Red, yellow, orange, and gold

September’s colorful foliage fills my soul

awakened by chilly mornings as leaves rustle about

blanketing the forest where new shoots will sprout

this is my season ~ September, October, November

the Autumn of life warmed by a crackling fire’s embers

come, let’s sit for a spell, and tell our favorite stories

taking comfort as September shares her glory
