She Persists


the celebratory nature
of the garden persists
despite winter’s imposed dormancy

Light In The Leaves


shining like gold
glowing like embers
light is life

Chosen By Light


the sun’s light
shifts towards spring
expired blooms bloom again

Deceptive Delicacy


blooming through
the ferocious winter
beauty’s tenacity

Hydrangea Alighted


last year’s bloom
basking in
this spring’s sunshine

becoming and beaconing
the season’s change
