June 26: Mount Equinox

At just over 3,800 feet, Mount Equinox is the highest mountain in the Taconic range in southwestern Vermont. From Manchester Center, there's an private toll road to the top (owned by Carthusian monks) which offers some spectacular views of the Taconics, the Green Mountains, and the valley between them. And the occasional wildlife sighting.
 
Matters of scale:
driving down the mountain
we slow for a crossing vole.

Blue flag irises--
even more beautiful
near the singing wren.

Wild seaside roses.
Empty bait bag on the beach
for holding summer.

bent over by rain
voluptuous peony
that same old story

June 22: Tableau

Crow hops off roadkill,
waits politely on the lawn
as my car passes.

June 21: Shortest night

Midsummer's Eve--
dancing fireflies in the grass,
Saturn's glorious rings.
