Ah now nice to be among the softly swaying trees of the rain forest filled with it's friends. I stopped by another forum and in a matter of minutes was called so many names I departed for a breath of fresh air.

If only we could deposit all the nasty people in the world in the middle of a rain forest or any forest and leave them for a couple months to see if the beauty and quiet might improve their attitude.

Maggie - that was so very nice of you to post the link.. Anita was an exceptional person and will be remembered in the thoughts of all who knew her.

Thank you Wildclickers. I don't know of any other thread that holds the same feeling that this one does.

Thanks everyone... I didn't realize how much I would miss Anita. We had both ganged up on our long distance carriers and got low prices so we could talk just about every day, until she went to the nursing facility. Her sisters had her phone installed there but she was too weak to answer.

This evening I was looking through some threads at the Buzzard's Roost & discovered a poem that she posted there with a note. Here it is:

Posted this on Abuzz a long time ago - still like it.



French Gardens

The classic tapestry
of woven designs geometric -
lines of colors,
vegetation
abiding the architect's compass
and protractor.
Alleys of hedges going nowhere,
a colorful carousel
playing the same tune over and over.
Shrubs forced into cones,
the individuality of flowers lost
in the massive plantings of solid colors,
textures and fragrances blurring.
Man's perfect design
allowing no weeds to take root
whose vagrant seeds may be brought
by a careless wind
or an errant sea breeze.

Yet in the palace wall
a moss has established itself
in the cracks between the stones.
A grimping ivy strives
to scale the man-made precipice.
Molds of glorious colors
have painted the dull stones
with sunny pastels
and bright mandalas
of orange, turquoise and yellow.
And what's that?
A little garden hanging
between chipped mortar and rock!
Tiny violets,
bluebells
and ferny growth
invite a closer look.

(Has the ocean, too,
established a beachhead
on this stony outpost of civilization?
Seashells!
Spirals, turrets, and scallops
scattered in the sandy mortar,
fossilized in its matrix.
The weathered palace wall betrays
the vulnerability of its classic design.)

The courage
of these rebellious growths
spurs us on
through the rusty gate
and out on to the prairie
beyond the garden wall.
Wild things lure us farther.
A riot of color and texture
carries us along.
Clovers of yellow, white, and violet,
and a multitude
of other weedy flowers
freely mix with the grass,
untouched
by the gardener's vigilant blade.
Herbs mix with wildflowers,
scraggly dandelions
and a scattering of cosmos
make a jolly bouquet
at the feet of her majesty, the Rose,
now unconfined
and spreading her limbs
in voluptuous color,
embracing a wild jasmine,
letting their tendrils
sensuously intertwine
and their fragrances mingle.

The poppies,
mallows,
wild raspberries,
and nameless other companions
threaten anarchy,
both untamed and delicate.
Their airborne allies,
buzzing and dancing,
help to strengthen their assault
upon the palace wall
and the classic garden beyond,
who stands watch stiffly
in uniforms and ordered ranks,
guardian of dignity, law, and order.

--Richard Sidy

Pwayfarer - Since I've visited you at your home, I've worried about you - I know you have a steep driveway and have had a lot of snow these last 2 years. I'm hoping you have a good strong neighbor to help you out!
