Work And Play

between wood stackings
we put paddles in the water
time is our friend

Hummingbird’s Hallelujah

for the nectar
sweet people make

View Of The Gate That Does Not Open

look past and beyond
the overgrown and closed
and see all that is

Feverfew By The Fence

the second bloom
an insurance
of immortality

Two Birds

the expanse of the sky
was unfathomable
so they flew together

Queen Anne and Goldenrod

the meadow
a fall display

Morning Glory

I fly in your sky
and swim in
your ocean of blue

Essential Elements

steel heron
waits by stone bowl
filled with rain


being both
demure and extravagant
she beguiles

Now The Light Slants Towards September

shadows grow longer
the birdhouse stands empty
the quiet of fall approaches

Flower Farm

bees and butterflies
work the fields
beauty is the harvest

Our Spot

I’ll meet you there
when the stars come out
and we’ll name them until dawn


an explosion of orange
sending curves into curls
and polka dots popping

A Complexity Of Symmetry

circle upon circle
the center
echos the edges

The Awakening Day

gentle as
a mother’s kiss
the touch of dawn

Pink Moon

made of cotton candy
glowing all the day
sweet bella luna

Between And Beside

amidst the prickly places
filaments of tenderness
keep calling for touch
