another day of sunlit wandering--

another day of sunlit wandering-

doing nothing, saying nothing

doing nothing, saying nothing

seeking the valley spirit

seeking the valley spirit

tasting the fruits of soil and water--

tasting the fruits of soil and water–

another day

another day

with the soul shop always open

with the soul shop always open

doing nothing, saying nothing

doing nothing, saying nothing

but to those who come inside

but to those who come inside

for the gift of insignificance,

for the gift of insignificance,

emptiness and peace

emptiness and peace

About rivertoprambles

Welcome to Rivertop Rambles. This is my blog about the headwaters country-far afield or close to home. I've been a fly-fisher, birder, and naturalist for most of my adult life. I've also written poetry and natural history books for thirty years. In Rambles I will mostly reflect on the backcountry of my Allegheny foothills in the northern tier of Pennsylvania and the southern tier of New York State. Sometimes I'll write about the wilderness in distant states, or of the wild places in the human soul. Other times I'll just reflect on the domestic life outdoors. In any case, I hope you enjoy. Let's ramble!

    Doc, these are classic poems to my ears, supplemented wit great visuals. A new medium- congrats!

  2. Doktor G., Thanks for the comment, my friend. I’d say the poems are classic in the sense that they’re intended to be simultaneously old and new, with the ego sitting quietly in the distance somewhere. Glad you like. And thanks, too, for the awesome postcard from Sevilla!

  3. Beautiful. Poetic lines and images, all beautiful. Thank you for the walk!

  4. Very pleased for your company, David!

    Walt – you captured fall perfectly!

  6. Thanks Long for the wonderful sentiment– I didn’t mean to do it, honest.
