No Expectations


Walking in the wood’s morning stillness,

Click on any photo for a better view.


on late autumn fallen leaves

that recent rain left damp with saturated color,


as kinglets with their quiet sounds


flitting from branch to branch

never pausing quite long enough,


I found myself with no expectations

content to listen to the voice of the day.



Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Thanks for sharing your site with me! I love the pictures of the leaves in water and ice and of the fungi! What a wonderful practice, to go on walks, take pictures, and write poetry!

  2. A large part of my spiritual practice, walking, listening, looking and taking it in. Hearing or seeing a bird always makes it better for me, but is not necessary. Thank you for these frequent connections to the beauty near us.
