Poetry – Treasure Chest

Poetry, Treasure Chest,

~  Treasure Chest ~

Ribbed and smoothed, some shaped as the nautilus chamber,

seashells scattered chipped and shorn,

tiny shipwrecks all wave-tossed and thrown.

Laid barren on final sandy shores,

some whitish or darkish hues,

others too, glistening remnants of watery jewels.

Abalone, lavender flowing, mother of pearl

splayed wide open in final homage.

*Photo taken on 2006 trip to Hunting Island Beach, South Carolina, USA. a natural, maritime, forest beach that remains undeveloped.  This S.C. State Park is a tidal island landscape that is always changing as it is impacted heavily by weather. It is one of my absolute favorite places to visit.

Happy tall Black-eyed Susans that a friend and I swapped when dividing our different plants a couple of years ago. They are now blooming in great abundance this year. They love the hot summer weather…  Gorgeous wildflowers! ~

The Department of Natural Resources released a statement recently about a yet undetermined cause of disease that is causing sickness and the death of many songbirds across several states, including Indiana. They have also included robins, blue jays, cardinals, and starlings in their request. They have asked everyone to not feed birds and remove feeders and birdbaths after cleaning with 10% bleach water to help prevent the spread of the disease. They have also requested that this be done with hummingbird feeders also. I was worried that the hummingbirds might not return next year as they always seem to ‘demand’ their feeders and let you know for sure if it is empty. However; it is not the feeder they are returning to, but their territory. We have taken ours down as requested. The birds are still coming to the flowers and granted are looking around for their easy handouts. But they also still look healthy, which is a win. You can find out more by checking your state Department of Natural Resources.

Happy birding and thank you for visiting. ~ terre
