Home from the pond; this afternoon's walk around the cranberry bog. (A bee with an alergy?)

_During each of these summer weeks, Kathy and I spend 4 or 5 days at our pond, and there the wireless links are weak and momentary, at best... but I try.
_From Emma's blog, the word -midden- reminded me of a scribbling of mine from a few years back.

Off... to the pond, 'tele a to.'

A Student says, I have much to learn;
a Master says, I have learned... how little I know.

I search the earth and clouds

Remember when the jelly jars were saved... expendables, for sipping milk and juice, and perhaps some "Moxie" ?

Nervously nocturnal, their eyes glow in the least light.

Nora... urged I post this, this private note to her, and the connective haiku comment I left at her blog, and that I conjoin them... as haibun. This, a recollection, then, of times passed, and I thank you, my young friend!

_We visited my father's grave as often as we could, he in North Western Connecticut, and we here. During those nine years I noticed no changes in that unpretentious country graveyard, or as some would call it, unkempt.
_Then my mother joined him; the day after her funeral, and only then, I noticed her freshly cut name and date... in the moss and ivy, and mold of their darkened cairn. Odd, how things can grow and change and be so unseen until that one instant of reality.

_To my niece, Maureen, her husband Jason, and our Grandnephew "Jake" we offer our deepest congratulations; soon a new Son and Brother, and for K and I, a new Grandnephew!
_Too, we extend our good wishes to the waiting Great Grandmother, Grandmother, and Aunt! (My post of July 16th was -not- a premonition, but yet... this is a sequel.)
