SJPT Stewardship Manager Kathleen Foley shared this with fellow staff this morning. Too good not to post:

"A beautiful drive into Red Mill Farm this a.m. So beautiful, in fact, that I had to stop and take it in for a bit. To really let the beauty and magic of this place sink in. This is my morning commute, for heaven’s sake.

"It inspired this photo, and the following short poem:

Mourning Oaks

The oaks at morning.
Or are they mourning? Do they dream
Sadly, wistfully
of blue flashes of feathers
That come with the warm breath of spring?
Or are they simply still
Sending their thoughts to the deep soil
The only activity the secret
Furtive language of fungus.
