An Avocado Cycle

the avocado tree. cut back. away from the house. a month ago. yet January blossoms. appear and drop. with the wind. and rain. today. Sunday. making little difference. this is still the tree. to sit under. occasionally. often.

learning
a frivolous moment
i count breath

last mid-July to mid-October. 137 avocados. a record. for the 31 years. i’ve watched. the cycle. most of the avocados are in the two pound range. most of the avocados. went to neighbors. family. and friends.

still. the sunset gate has an attraction as well. of course. the animals. make use of both.

a pale rose
opening the sunset gate
meditation
