Like Lovers Parting


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

Frost Dodger


as summer wanes
each flower more precious
for the precariousness

In These Times


delicate bloom
in a vast sky
reassures

Contemplating Life


a good companion
is the flower
full of quiet and complexities

Feverfew By The Fence

the second bloom
an insurance
of immortality

Morning Glory

I fly in your sky
and swim in
your ocean of blue

Priscilla

being both
demure and extravagant
she beguiles

Culmination

an explosion of orange
sending curves into curls
and polka dots popping

A Complexity Of Symmetry

circle upon circle
the center
echos the edges

Pink Moon

made of cotton candy
glowing all the day
sweet bella luna

Between And Beside

amidst the prickly places
filaments of tenderness
keep calling for touch

Ricochet Of Loveliness

phlox white clouds
the sky echos
the garden’s bloom

Greeting Everything Where It Is


she opened
her beauty
in every direction

The Petunia Looking Back

deep inside
a piercing
green eye

Exceeding Expectations


deemed ordinary
delivering a spectacle
oh the muchness of marigolds

Tender Hearted


amidst her silver foliage
fine and fancy hearts
on the garden’s sleeve
