The Truth Of Scale


the proportion between
bird box and forest trees
makes me right sized

Autumn’s Calm


the landscape
soothed
by a gentle rain

Wood Duck Box By The Old Corn Field


the frozen marsh
the fallow field
everything in its time

Frontline


throughout
winter’s long march
positions held for spring

Beside The Dusty Road


a meeting place
for man and nature’s
communion

Encouragement


stepping stones
in the mossy path
invitation to the woods

Birds At The Box


tending and guarding
the vigilant work
of parenting

Inside the Bird Box


phoebe
on her nest
of moss and dryer fluff

The Wind Winds Down


peeking out
the storm’s force and fury
remains in the tilted horizon

autumn light
etches the edges
of everything into memory

lupin shared their secrets
of beauty, bloom and seed
summer spread across the field

Lavender Glooming

the colors
wrap around us
we are held
in heaven’s embrace

Summer Home Solstice

in the kindness
of June’s gentle sun
babies feather and iris bloom
