with lichen and ice

Indecision

DSC02015
woods wrapped
in a shroud of cold
elements undecided
more rain or snow

Balance

Oh to be
a snowflake
balanced on a branch
set in place by grace
residing in a sacred place

Gallant-Tree

In the thickest part of the thicket
where the footing was most precarious
a branch held my weight and restored my balance.
Chivalry lives in the woods.

Visual Feast


My eyes devour
tart cranberries in blueberry blue sky.
Nature’s banquet always satiates my hunger for beauty.

Wrinkles


Wrinkles in the tree’s bark
will forever honor the missing branch.
Smile lines of its former reach.
