Rowing the Tulip Boat

What’s more here than now!

    My neighbor’s bed of tulips,

rows crowded into rows.

    Not Elizabeth’s rainbow

 

bilge, gas and oil between

    her rowboat’s struts.

Not a serrated knife’s leftover

Faith in Vermont: Teaching Our Kids to Cheer

Posted on May 20, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



A couple of weeks ago, our phone rang right after dinner. On the other end was a voice belonging to a 7-year-old boy we know.

"I was wondering if you could come to my baseball game this Friday?" he asked.

He'd recently started practicing with our town's Little League baseball team, the Middlebury Meteors. That Friday they'd be playing their first game, against the Cornwall Cougars.

Faith in Vermont: An Ode to Bag Balm

Posted on April 22, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Faith Gong



I read somewhere that the best way to tell a person’s true age is to look at their hands. Thanks to the intersection of our vanity with innovations in technology and medicine, it’s now possible to camouflage signs of age in the body, face, hair, and teeth. But as far as I know, not much can be done about wrinkled, mottled, vein—y hands.

Hands may just be the real Picture of Dorian Grey.

Faith in Vermont: Use Side Entrance

By Faith Gong



In two weeks, my parents will move to Vermont from the town in Northern Virginia where I grew up, their home for 37 years.

More on that later; for today all you need to know is their new front door in Vermont needs work. Everyone – the real estate agent, the sellers, the contractors they consulted – agreed that the door should be repainted or replaced, and that the doorstep needs to be repaired.

Snowbuds: A poem by Gary Margolis

Posted on March 12, 2014 | Blog Category:
By Gary Margolis



The snow bursts our spring closed.

Crocus used to be a word for purple

spring. We’re used to calling flowers

this time of year, door stoppers.

Opening a door so we can watch

our steps. And not be still March-

shoveling. Every year we want to forget

spring arrives at the back door.

Where we lean our shovels.

Where there’s nearby bursting.

And not the snow budding.
