If Summer Could Go On Forever


sunflowers would
shine their cheerful light
through winter’s dark night

Like Lovers Parting


monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun

What?

“I can’t hear you.
Say it in my ear”
“I said I think we lost the ball.”

Renewal


autumn’s intensity
of color and light
renews my spirit

Frost Dodger


as summer wanes
each flower more precious
for the precariousness

What’s In A Name?


call me
by my real name
groused the pheasant

Appreciation


The butterfly, cow and flower
conferring beauty
on the day

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

Circle Of Life


every ending
ushers in
the next beginning

Cascade Of Hearts


the one hundred year old
stone frog
worships at this alter

In These Times


delicate bloom
in a vast sky
reassures

The River In September


the deepening
of green and blue
expands the view

Gathered and Dispersed

the congregation
of monarchs
billows away
