a little on my lately & the hudson river valley
The pictures here don’t relate to my title so much
but suffice to say,
they came from a trip with equal beauty
to that of the week before last.
We arrived in the dark
to a small cottage
far off the beaten track.
A place near Cold Spring, New York
in the Hudson River Valley.
A part of the state that I hadn’t been before
but one so full of beauty,
I’m certain I’ll be back.
We awoke early Friday
to a farm so quietly beautiful
that it took a moment
to take it all in.
On our way to breakfast
we walked the wrong way
down the drive
and found ourselves smack in front
of two spotted pigs.
They ran toward us at a rate I was surprised to see
and snouts snorting.
It was awesome.
We saw fields of fireflies,
pastures with cows
and more deer
than I could reasonably count.
We saw piglets and chicks
and tiny wee goats.
I’ll be back with pie later this week.
Until then, hope things are swell.
