Late Bloom

dahlia’s delicacy
in counterpoint
to fall’s exuberance

Petal Flake Snowball

white hydrangea
the snow
before the snow

While Monarchs Have Departed The Butterfly Bush Blooms On


the nourishment
of beauty
soul food

Intensity


not to be outdone
by turning maples
the stoplight dahlia

In These Times


delicate bloom
in a vast sky
reassures

Contemplating Life


a good companion
is the flower
full of quiet and complexities

Feverfew By The Fence

the second bloom
an insurance
of immortality

Queen Anne and Goldenrod

the meadow
arranges
a fall display

Morning Glory

I fly in your sky
and swim in
your ocean of blue

Priscilla

being both
demure and extravagant
she beguiles

Culmination

an explosion of orange
sending curves into curls
and polka dots popping

Pink Moon

made of cotton candy
glowing all the day
sweet bella luna

Between And Beside

amidst the prickly places
filaments of tenderness
keep calling for touch

Ricochet Of Loveliness

phlox white clouds
the sky echos
the garden’s bloom

Still Jumping

a merry band
of cheerfulness
still jumping mid-summer

Greeting Everything Where It Is


she opened
her beauty
in every direction

One Among Many


each the same
all distinct
as with flowers people

Blue Only At The Edges

anomaly
of the blue diamond
a new perfection
