Coldwater May Moon Walk
Coldwater Full Moon Walks but here is the notice for the May 10th walk.–Susu The Green People Full Moon Walk at Sacred Coldwater SpringsWednesday, May 10, 2017Gather in the Coldwater Springs free parking lot, 7 pm The Green People have returned to Coldwater—the children of the sun have burst out of the ground. The air smells lush. From 10,000-feet up a raindrop takes eight minutes to fall. Honey bees forage purple creeping Charlie ground ivy or skydive up into blooming fruit trees. Mallard ducklings and Canada goslings are making their downy debuts. American robins begin calling at about 4:30 am and by the end of the month monarch butterflies will flicker back like hope in a screwed-up political world.
