ever greener

was back at the farm the weekend past to strim and tidy some more, place is looking well with everything growing back now.

fingers crossed for the house rebuild to continue soon… in the mean time i will continue with the garden replanting.

all lost – Arganil, Portugal

Much has been burned in the Arganil area and beyond.

My farm in Monte Frio has been completely burnt & charred – thankfully the house that was being reconstructed is untouched as until now it was only stone walls.

Here are some pics i took over the weekend.

On the edge

Atop the rock upon which i built 
my sacred tower of stones that tilt,
she nibbles on the moss there grows;
Dainty, poised – her balance shows.
It could easily come crashing down
As shes turns herself nimbly around –
Destroying the pillar either by intent, 
the result is the same, if its accident.
A precarious position i can only observe
in case my proximity breaks her nerve.
And so i pause with breath baited
hoping she spares what was created.
