Faith in Vermont: Oh! The Places We Didn't Go!

Posted on November 3, 2015 | Blog Category:

It was early August, and our family’s minivan was midway across the Connecticut River bridge between New Hampshire and Vermont, headed home from a visit to Rhode Island, when it hit me: Road trips with our children no longer felt like extended torture sessions! In fact, road trips with our children had become…enjoyable!

Poem: November Street

November Street

The geese can’t quite tell

where they’re going one field

to the next, looking for wheel-

ruts and cornstalks, a wet place

 

to spend the night.

The moon having risen,

the stars somehow fallen.

Telling isn’t it, how even

 

they can’t navigate

without one of them leading,

sensing there’s a field

Out and About: Looking for StoryMatters

By Jessie Raymond



Last week in my “Around the Bend” column, I declared that as the Addison Independent’s community calendar editor, I felt that I should make more of an effort to attend at least some of the community events I compile each week. Along with that, I promised to write about my experiences, in blog form. So here it is: the first installment of my new Addison Independent blog, “Out and About.”

“I don’t think we’re going to come in last this year!” my daughter marveled as we turned onto Main Street after taking our “shortcut.”

Poem: Fences without borders

Fences Without Borders

 

My neighbor leans a shovel against his wild

apple, so it appears he, or someone, can shovel

a tree-full of drops under the electric fence.

 

The cows wander over this fifth day

of October our government is making excuses

for the bombs they dropped undercover.

 

The cows risk themselves for sweet, rotting apples.

So we can see bodies stacked by a trunk.

Faith in Vermont: Take My Stuff, Please!

Posted on September 22, 2015 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



Stuff expands to fill the space available.

I’m not a physicist, but I’m pretty sure that’s a proven fact. It may even fall under Newton’s first law of motion: an object in motion will not change its velocity unless an external force acts upon it. Except in this case, the objects in motion are our family’s possessions, and the external force is me.

I am on a mission to get rid of our stuff.

Poem: Sea of White Apple Blossoms

Sea of White Apple Blossoms

With all this presidential hopeful fear

of uninvited immigrants, I’m happy

to be standing in line at customer

 

service, behind a Jamaican man, wiring

home money to his family on the island.

Seeing his smooth hands, the apple-picking

 

kind, a stem between his teeth, his Jamaican

toothpick. He and his friends wear their famous

knitted pullover hats, in this fall time
