By The River In July


thirsty fields
anticipate
some much needed rain

You Can (But You Can’t) Fence Me In

the dandelions corralled
but their wishes
cannot be contained

At Summer’s Edge


down by the river
the susans and goldenrod
commune

Watching The Clouds Parade


this rightful place
at river’s edge
near summer’s end

Still Life


the river
pauses to admire
the bloom

River Crossing


ripples reveal
the zig zag ways
of paddling paws

On The Terrace By The Connecticut


river rushes by
flowers take
their time

Suspension


first flurry
winter whispers
the world is hushed

River Wilds

leopard spots
zebra stripes
camouflage of ice

A Lingering

red canoe
a memory
of summer’s kiss

River Birch In Snowfall

the quieting white
shrouds
December’s last days

Reading the Forested Landscape

October morning
the landscape’s poem
told in color and light

Inscription

autumn light
etches the edges
of everything into memory

Merger

in the current of cattails
ripples of blossoms
as meadow melds with water

Palisades

sacred spot
where eagles teach
flight

Good Morning

morning graze
the river flows
and songbirds serenade

Sunrise on the Oxbow

black and white
morning light
darkness in retreat
