Mere Seconds

be still
to discover how quickly
things change

Gentle Mountains

rounded shoulders
of time
guide the river

Ascension

sedum climbs
stone steps
footprints of pink and green

Our Voices Carried

cutting through the fog
sparkling with dew
we connect

More Precious Than Money

we pile up
our quartered logs
to see us through

Clarity

everything intensified
as edges and differences
make themselves known

Wearing Rings Like Saturn

from the forest floor
emerges
another universe

Apple Tree Offering

her limb
heavy with ripeness
presenting gifts

The Wondrous Wind

transforming
leaves into light
before winter’s good night

Adieu Blue

your intensity
more precious
for its passing

Cathy’s Chrysanthemums

her spirit visits
each year bringing us
flowers to remember her with

Winter Outerwear

the forest
wears a brocade cape
of leaves and fruit and vines

Still Green

in the morning sun
turning
frost into dew
