Bad Axe, Michigan - “There Shall Come Forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse”


And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Isaiah 11:1-4

Hope is the Thing with Feathers

 Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.

A Winter Snow in Bad Axe

These pictures were taken a week before Christmas.  The temperatures dropped to 14F and being from Florida, I was not prepared for the snow storm and wind chill factor.  Only crazy Floridians would drive in this weather or a craze photographer.  I like the stillness of the snow background and the hints of color against the frozen landscape.  I was very happy to go back to Florida.

Ode to Barns Past of Bad Axe

Ode to Barns Past
Conceived in need, and built with pride,
by careful loving hands.
Mystique, with styles of purpose blend,
from your ancestral lands.
Your mow and stall made food for all,
with plenty left to sell.
You’ve sheltered countless herds and flocks,
and served your masters well... (by R.Talada)

Jack's Flowers Bad Axe, Michigan

 "I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one."

A Crow and an Old Barn - Why is he staring at me?

One crow came, sat on yonder barm
Looked straight down and cawed at me
“What is it? What message?” I implored
He looked silently, but spoke no more
I laughed, and thought, “I sound like Poe”
“Talking to a Crow”, I’ve got to go!

The Snow Maidens so Graceful and Fair

Amidst The Snow Flakes and Fairies
The Snow Maidens dance
 From Forest to Meadow.  
Their shilhouettes we follow
Twirling on pointed toes
From Moonbeam to Shadow. 
Snow and ice are their friends. 
The Coated White Earth is their floor;
Center Stage from Heaven,
The stars shine on them,
Seeking no other.
Their eyes sparkle like Crystals
Amidst the Snow Fairies and Sprites,
They waltz in Solace
With Mystical Delight.  
From Winter's breathe they came
Twirling and dancing in the chilled air;
Through the forest and the fields
The wind whispers their name,
Brilliant and translucent---
The Maidens of Heaven's White Veil.

Peace before the Storm

This peaceful scene was across the street from the hospital next to a very busy road.  It looked out of place in a commerical zone.  There was light snow on the ground and gray skies over head.  the trees towering over the house were beautiful.  The next day the roads were covered in snow and everything was in white.
