of blossoms

Everything Rises


as morning sidles
to the edge of the garden
the gingko bows to the day

throughout
winter’s long march
positions held for spring

All Things In Their Rightful Place


peacefulness articulated
by the birdhouse
beneath the flowering crab

Knowing Better We Had Hoped Anyway


dashing the hope
of early spring
winter returned

joy’s gesture
expressive limbs
welcoming winter

Keepers

the blue bird box
custodians of paradise

home sweet home
the many duties
of the maple tree
