Poem: The White Cross 

There is a white cross
in the pasture,

a reminder of the gentle horse
buried there

in the shadow of the great
mountain

the earth-
busy with its bones.

A light rain begins to fall.
I take my time

walking up
the road

to the old white
house.

  • Follow that Spark: Brooklyn Designer Turns Farm Visit into Book that Gives Back

    In August, Brooklyn-based digital designer Michelle Layne Lawson read an article on Chronogram's website about Tomorrow, Tomorrow, a 150-acre farm animal sanctuary in Columbia County that was struggling to raise funds to stay afloat. Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation. Don't mind us, we're just sobbing over here.
