Last One In


propelled
by Mom’s encouragement
first swim

Daisies


humble daisies
holding up the world
with steadfast cheerfulness

Encouragement


stepping stones
in the mossy path
invitation to the woods

Cheered On


the faltering spirit
finds footing and support
in the solace of the garden

Alternate Days

taking turns with sunshine
grey skies and rain drops
encourage the greening landscape

The Golden One

every limb’s gesture
was an encouragement
to joy
