A Winter Radiance


here a rainbow rises
of colored branches
behold this halo of joy

Concentration


a potent joy
in the brightness
of crabapples

Nana’s Dooryard Garden


her welcome
always joyous
and abundant

Not Done Yet


sweet September
unwilling to let
summer’s party fade away

Morning’s Song


voices raised
in joyous praise
birds greet the day

Poppies


cacophony of colors
a wild flowering
abandoned to joy

Joyous Cacophony


bleeding hearts
tambourine the wind
allium and iris
sing solo notes

Rhapsody of Yellow and Red


primerose bloom
joy
made tangilbe

Visit


sit awhile
and listen to
the flowers conversation

Set Upon By The Sun


joyful sparks
in Nonnie’s garden
columbine catch fire
