A Marriage Of Maple And Birch

distinct
and yet
together

Rendezvous

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

Birch Bark Mushroom


decomposition
a transition of
sustenance to self

One Of Two


each circle self distinct
bark barrier between
but time and proximity
merge two into one

Mystery Of Snow


cloaked in cold
insulated by the thing
from the thing

Three Birch By The Barn Door


these friends
experience, strength and hope
my life’s companions

The Old Birch Disrobed


time
takes her
seasons dress her

The Old Dame’s Rock Wall


huddled together
against the cold
warm in company

The Maple That Is Sunshine


like splashes
of the sun
fall’s fine finish

The Princess Tree


voluminous pink
in every shade and hue
adorned her

Watercolored World


the edges
between everything
dissolving
