The Garden’s Shape Emerges


spring begins
with a kaleidoscope
of greens

In Sync With The Landscape


the garden bed
and puppy
curve

Summer Blooms Summon Fall


the garden’s call of color
an invitation
to the leaves to turn

Contemplation And The Bench


the empty bench
holding space
for all of my thoughts

Frog On The Toadstool


I’ll do
what I want
is his only thought

The Garden At Noon


from the shade
I take a long drink
of her colors

For The Bees


the garden bed
a candy store
offering lavendar lollipops

Everything Rises


as morning sidles
to the edge of the garden
the gingko bows to the day

A Subtle Flourish


above
last year’s leaves
a complexity of delight

Tiger Lily


big cat
of the flower bed
wearing leopard spots

Classical Bloom


pillars
of spring
the white iris

Those Girls


chorus line of tulips
all high kicks
and red lipstick

Waking


sleepy heads
dewy eyed bulbs
rise from the garden bed

Omnivore


who knew?
chipmunks are
the early birds

Snowdrops In Shadow


emergence
from the darkness
hope’s spring eternal
