Small water lily pond Deer Isle, Maine, USA
This lily pond I found turning the car around pulling into the
large space next to the road…it is at the bottom of two steep
hills and when driving, attention is paid to the road, not the
surprises beside it. It now is a “must stop” .. always something
of beauty there in and out of lily season.

# 1530 … seize the poem prompt: tide

incoming tide
Blue Hill bay shores
on shore breeze

# 1529 .. seize the poem prompt: busy




summer time
sea creatures lure
tourists play
lobsters scatter ~ others pose
fishy questions galore
The Penobscot East Resource Center
in Stonington, Maine, has a wonderful
interactive room including a touch tank
filled with sea creatures including a
rare albino (actually sort of light blue)
lobster. Catching a white lobster
is a rare occurrence – only 1 in 100,000,000 !!
I did get “selfie” of the lobster in my hand
to mark the day.

seize the poem prompt: midnight




seize the poem prompt: midnight
My Response to the Prompt:
my time to shine
ten PM to 2 AM
morning people scare me
smiling and cheerful
how can that be

I am so a night person…
living in a day person’s world.
CST is where I am at even in
Downeast Maine.
… I grew up in Wisconsin
and my biorhythm is set to
the time there … any where
I have lived… I finally just learned
to accept it… but hard for others
to understand !

seize the poem prompt: silence
My Response to the Prompt:

miss hearing
middle of night call
promptly at 2 AM
no train whistles at crossing
silence where comforting sound
once rode the rails
The trains no longer run on this track
except for the Downeast Scenic Railroad
a fully restored operating railroad that runs
tourists excursions on this very track two
blocks from my home… and yes.. I can hear
the whistle blowing those days !

children of all ages can have with the train.
