Pin It

Diorama After Creeley 

In a space provided
was a copse in late
Summer all tamarack
& birch. & inside it
ever the tallest ferns
by sun splashed
luminous as dayglow
in that greenwood
grown by some whimsy
in the bird-chirped
too over the top
a canvas moment
beyond the haiku
beyond Thoreau’s Cape
Cod sketchbook
easily acknowledged
as yet that
still small chirp
to recall
to see again

    High season in the Hudson Valley is a special kind of wonderful, from the glories of your own backyard to the wild beauty all around us. Make it even better with these summertime picks.

  • Cancer Solstice: Summer’s Big Picture

    People in this part of the world tend to think of summer as the "free and easy" season, thanks to the amenable weather and memories of childhood summers off. But in all honestly, how often have you over-scheduled and overextended yourself, racing to make the most of summer fun, only to find yourself exhausted and wondering when you’ll get to slow down and enjoy the season?
