Words as wings (2007)

Richie Davis has been covering Franklin County for forty years as a reporter for The Recorder. The Saturday, August 20, 2016 edition had an article by Davis about his experiences during that time.

He also compiled a list of his top 40 articles, which includes one in 2007 about Carol Purington, titled "Words as Wings." He wrote in the introductory paragraph, "I felt it a gift to be able to interview her."

Carol Purington.

July 2016

More haiku from the new book I am slowly putting together, “A Drift of Birdsong.”

Outdoor shower
the solar heater nailed into place
by a woodpecker

Clearing sky
the wind chime spatters
drops of music

peanut butter and jam
where we picked the berries

A neighbor’s maze –
taking its curves with me,
alarm cries of a blue jay
