Diamond Drops


the only tool needed
for mining beauty
was observation

A Winter Radiance


here a rainbow rises
of colored branches
behold this halo of joy

Oak And Heuchera Juxtaposed


rain revealed
a still purple leaf
preserved by cold

This December’s Interval


rock, leaf, ice, snow
elements and artifacts
underfoot

Light In The Leaves


shining like gold
glowing like embers
light is life

Berry Cacophony


bright and bursting
rambling scrambling her colors
across the landscape

In Community We Nestle Together


like kernels on the cob
our places distinguished
by proximity to each other

Bellicose Beauty


running wild
with the grapes
scheming bittersweet

The Old Dame’s Rock Wall


huddled together
against the cold
warm in company

Concentration


a potent joy
in the brightness
of crabapples

The Same And Different


claiming self
notwithstanding
similarity
