They Are Dancing

from the bench
we watch
firefly flowers

Contemplation And The Bench


the empty bench
holding space
for all of my thoughts

The Garden Bench


in morning shade
watching
a summer day unfold

In Nature’s Backyard


the silent travels
of shadows
and wildlife

In That Space


between the leaves
and their reflection
resides consciousness

Contemplating the Flowers


shooed from the garden bed
the porch as
observation perch

Visit


sit awhile
and listen to
the flowers conversation

Consciousness Born


intention
of contemplation
is transformation

The Landscape’s Art


masterpiece
the window’s view
of painted pines

Sedum View


to see
what flowers see
the expanding harmonies

Time Out


solitary chair
a private perch
for perspective making

Witness

in the still white
the field’s soul
lays bare

Winter Abstraction

storm’s contemplation
each flake a memory
and time reorganized

Discernment

sunlight and shadows
the only guests received
preservation of retreat

Kit

self possessed
the surety of instinct
edges out all doubt

Everything

the garden holds
life and death with
Buddha at the center

Buddha’s Back

in the present
facing the future
honoring the past
