Fresh New Winter
May everyone find some sunshine and happiness in these uncertain times. Health and safety to all. Our sun is sinking. Getting ready. Lots of opportunity and doubt. Being outdoors will be our way of doing business this winter. Count on WG to make it happen in a safe and fun way. Many more announcements as we ponder on how to open carefully. Farmers Almanac fun yet never accurate.

By Immersion by Rose McLarney
To get a pure pumpkin,
one with sweet, smooth flesh, you had to
pollinate by hand and tape the blossom
closed. Otherwise, the plants would cross,
get fertilized by any squash around.
Black horses wouldn’t stop rolling
in the dust, in pleasure,
legs up and out from under every load,
until their intestines tangled.
Or, at least that’s what was said in warning,
like they said Hellbenders,
two foot long, slime covered salamanders
that filled the river, were evil.
Hellbenders breathed through loose skins,
filtering that water for decades,
and I swam in it, I went in deep.
