All in one woodland ramble along the creek
I saw a pileated woodpecker through my binoculars,
a pair of kingfishers swooping and a great blue heron
startled by me and my dogs into taking off over the creek.
Just one of those would have felt like great good luck.
But all three?  Riches riches riches!
I leave the woods feeling as if gold coins jingle
merrily in my pocket.  
O yes I am extravagantly wealthy!
I have the time to wander
two legs to carry me
two eyes to see
the sky above 
the ground below
and all the wonders a person 
could ever care to see.

  2. Thanks, Shari! I do feel very lucky!
