CT: New Haven County-Orange- Housatonic Overlook & Tucker’s Ridge

Finding new outdoor adventures and capturing unique photo perspectives has been my respite through these challenging and historical times. What I hadn’t anticipated is the wonderful response I have received and the positive energy it promotes. Introduced in my last adventure, I share another poem written by a lovely young lady with a beautiful free spirit to complement the pictures to better convey the aura of the experiences.

Poem by my new friend, Savannah Lynn Prezioso.

Weight of the world 
On those shoulders of yours
Still all you see
Are wide open doors
The steady rock
For those flailing
The wind that sustains
Those that are sailing
Pause on the ridge
Though they don’t notice 
When you need support too
Though they don’t notice
When it’s too much for you
Spring thaw breaking through

Though they don’t notice
No one can hold it all
And they won’t catch you
When it’s your time to fall
Water falls with nature’s ice sculptures
The patriarchy demands 
We give and we give
And sure it is kind
But we, too, must live
What does your heart say
What do you need
Here is fertile ground
Let us plant a seed
Rhythm of the Boardwalk
Here is your pulse 
A rhythm all its own
We are all searching
For a place to call home

Let the moon soothe you
Let me hold you too
We will lay on the Earth
And just enjoy the view

Thank you Savannah.

The Housatonic Overlook and Tuckers Ridge is in Orange, CT. The ridge is easily viewable steps away from the parking area. Below is the trail map.
