while leaving
they reveal the beauty
of their complexities

decomposition
a transition of

The Artist At Play


nature
in her paint box
the intrepid unexpected

Tiny Are All Beginnings


at the crest
of a moss mountain
a pine begins

will cross the line
in due time

green dinosaur
rises from the ancient earth
defying extinction

only to rise again in the next season
as hope eternal, the spring ephemerals.

A spiral staircase from the forest floor
like an Escher leading everywhere and nowhere
all at once.
