Every day, a photograph, a poem. One April in 2017, we ventured into Northrup Canyon when the snakes would not be out and we could tromp around the basalt outcroppings and look up into the pines climbing the coulee walls for nesting and soaring bald eagles. What found, to our delight were these lovely Dodecatheon hendersonii or Henderson’s Shooting Star— a native wildflower of our region in stunning purple color and scattered in the thawing moist spring grass– back when the weather was still our friend, though warmer than years past.

of purple passion petals
still reaching to the sky
A single point leads to the earth
As if to puncture earth for rebirth.
