Like Lovers Parting


monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun

Appreciation


The butterfly, cow and flower
conferring beauty
on the day

Quiet Roar Of The Eastern Tiger

she carries
pollen on her back
and creation on her wings

Counterparts And Wings

butterfly
on the thistle
the soft atop the bristle

More Precious For The Wear


even as life
takes from us
our beauty remains

Dahlias In The Background


bookends of summer
monarchs on
Buddleia

Pause for Refreshment


sipping
zinnia nectar
most delicious afternoon

Amongst The Blooms The Wing-ed Ones


beyond the porch rail
butterfly and hummingbird
make their morning rounds

Butterfly Alighted

small moment
enlarges
the day

Portrait of Summer


eternal rock
seasonal bloom
a passing butterfly

Homemaking


seeds ready for flight
intentions set on next season’s
home for monarchs

The Day is Full of Gifts


take
a moment
in the sun

Interlude

time stopped
eternity unraveled
in a visit to a petal
