We talk
now and then
friend to friend
two wild`flowers
of the forest shade
in sun`shine muted
by a green canopy
amid the silence
of our presence
now and then
we talk

“An old man’s mind is a graveyard
where the dead arise.” ~ Wendell Berry

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
