Savoring The Sunshine


summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

Garden Party

every one is invited
to summer’s dance

Summer Blooms Summon Fall


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

Nana’s Dooryard Garden


her welcome
always joyous
and abundant

As Earth Sleeps Beneath Her Blanket Of Snow

issues an invitation
to awaken

in the mossy path
invitation to the woods

At Beauty’s Behest


from the edge
of the pink woods
step into wonderland
