Yellow House With Chrysanthemums

harmony
presided throughout
house and garden

At The Sunflower House


every size and kind
of sunflower
under the sun

Field Colleague


we share a moment
then take off
to our work

Savoring The Sunshine


summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

Flower Farm

bees and butterflies
work the fields
beauty is the harvest

Morning At The Farm

first light caresses
the corn, flowers and barn
blessings of the new day

How The House Homesteads


the garden feeding us
laundry on the line
so many kinds of shelter

Storm Window


mountains of snow
gather on each pane
showing us this storm’s terrain

Keeping Company


the garden shed
and branch bench
share the wait for spring

Three Birch By The Barn Door


these friends
experience, strength and hope
my life’s companions

Like A Tattered Flag


the barn endured
dutifully
despite the wear

Hearing The Unsaid


the silence
of cold and snow
told us what we needed to know

They Dwell Together


length of birch
layers of brick
swirling of snow

The Haven Of Barns


come winter
they will encompass
my world

Beneath The Wise Gaze Of The Pines By The Barn


during shorter days
amidst longer shadows
we ready for winter
