A Pink Orange Sigh


between night’s descent
and the sleeping earth
resides the colored breath of light

Late Meadow


the season’s colors
settling down
to the ground into brown

Everything At Once


each element
finds the perfect place
next to all the rest

Bright Spot


early and delicate
light rises
from the dark ground

Wonder of the Wallow


being one with
the great fertile earth
oh the magic of mud

Slow Rising


the earth awoke
with tiny blooms
as tulips trumpet spring

Stegosaurus


green dinosaur
rises from the ancient earth
defying extinction

The Usefulness Of Everything


bark, branch and leaf
pay their debt to the earth
with themselves

Constellation

starry night
upon the ground
astronomy on earth

Apple’s Obligation

time is the harvester
of a crop that grew
to feed the earth

A Hush

snow fell
like the earth’s sighs
quieting all concerns

Veil

spider spins
a spiritual veil
between heaven and earth

Roots

earthly delights
colors and flavor developing
beneath the soil’s surface
