Ceremony for season’s end at McLeod Pond.
The universe in a puddle.
A Guilford slate quarry is locked away in another time.
Even in death, a delicate balance.
Cattail catches the sun at the close of the season.
A new day patters into the pool of now.
A miniature grove thrives on the river terrace.
A cheerful forest companion since childhood.
With a final flourish…
