Woodstock Spring 2020 : simplebooklet.com

The photos here were all taken during my quarantine
during the Covid pandemic in spring 2020. They were
shot in our front yard in Woodstock, N.Y., about fifty feet
from our front door.

A gentle glow, a shimmering boom
In this topsy-turvy summer of doom
Another splintered eruption of dawn
At the end of my green carpeted lawn
Armageddon lies coiled, coy and alive
Tongue quick, teeth sharp, a deathly vibe
Quick! I ick my shutter, a swooning dive
Into the darkness, the invisible blight
Holding tight to the fraught edges of night
As each morning we pray again for the healing light
The light the light … the light the light
