Four Of The Eight Spots

the forest warden
wears
orange epaulets

Statuesque

in stone
and petaled forms
a nobility of beauty

Simplicity As Palette

the hosta
is a minimalist
with a grand presentation of form

Repose

motionless he remained
his soul already
flown to heaven

Surely Shirley The Poppy

all ruffles and fringe
purple and orange
pizzaz

Rendezvous

every year they meet
at the base of the tree
their love renewed each spring

The Curvature Of Color

colors
shifted and changed
as they traversed the iris’s curves

The Delicate Alongside The Enduring

each polygon
delivers
petals against granite

Blue Columbine

your color
is the baritone
of the garden’s chorus

Taking The Day

mother and child
side by side
into the morning mist
