Exceeding Expectations


deemed ordinary
delivering a spectacle
oh the muchness of marigolds

House Wren On The Garden Rail


where to stay?
when all the world
is home

By The River In July


thirsty fields
anticipate
some much needed rain

The Past, The Present, The Future


the garden’s rose bouquet
holding and offering the blooms of
yesterday, today and tomorrow

The Frog Overseer


from his porch perch
supervising
summer’s bloom

The Painted Fern


a perfection
of details and form
waiting to be discovered

The Thrum Of Thirst


sipping sweetness
from the false foxglove
mocktails in the afternoon

Tender Hearted


amidst her silver foliage
fine and fancy hearts
on the garden’s sleeve

Morning Meadow


night is banished
now is
light’s time to play

Just After The Sun Rose

a fairy
flew by
trailing magic

Like Walking To School Through The Blossoming Orange Grove

a scent so
delicate and delectable
it transports me back to childhood

Cows In The Pasture

however far away
place holders
for a summer’s day

Four Of The Eight Spots

the forest warden
wears
orange epaulets

Statuesque

in stone
and petaled forms
a nobility of beauty
