Summer loves fall
Secrets fulfill, expand
Yellow-orange to red-orange
Fall loves winter
Within we freeze, no one sees
Stark ice welcomes suns occasional spark
White stone, green stone
Winter loves spring
Hello, are you there?
I’ve been gone so long—have you?
Your color, you have color
My world everywhere
Spring loves summer
Penetrate my nakedness with your passion
Glow, glow, glow for all
Beauty, you see me don’t you
I’m all here to suck empty dry, yellow-dry

Contributing writer, Rose Leuty, has lived on the San Juan Ridge for 27 years. She has served the community by working at Grizzly Hill, Oak Tree, and Malakoff schools, North Columbia Schoolhouse’s Story Telling Festival, and as a 6 ½ year EMT/Firefighter with the North San Juan Fire Department. A regular visitor to the Family Resource Center, Rose edited her first published work, a memoir, in our computer lab. Rose explained “I wrote A Poisoned Egg Blooms, a memoir, with the socially hidden situations I experienced in mind, as well as to objectively look at and then release my past. I continue to write with a deep love of Nature and acceptance of the human condition.”
A Poisoned Egg Blooms can be purchased at Harmony Books and SPD in Nevada City, Two Rivers Gallery in Downieville, and on Amazon.com.
Printed in this issue of Ridge Connections, Circle will be included in Ms Leuty’s next publication, a volume of poetry.
