Like Lovers Parting


monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun

The Awakening Day

gentle as
a mother’s kiss
the touch of dawn

And Your Heart Skips A Beat


sweet as a kiss
upon your cheek
pink tulip’s bloom

Kiss Me Over The Garden Gate


at the flower’s
request
love and affection

In Love


red poppies
in dappled light
kisses from the garden

Welcome


garden hostess
greeting all
with coral kisses

The Garden’s Valentine

each spot of red
a beloved’s kiss
such adoration bestowed

A Lingering

sleeping beauties
their blooms await
the sun’s awakening kiss

Kiss

the day arrived
in wisps and sighs
the kiss of color as night goodbyes

Embossed

diamondized by dew
pink with sparkle
morning’s kiss

Buttercup

Shinning yellow
beacon of summer
buttercup is a kiss from the sun

Indian Summer

When an October morning is gentle enough for bare feet
and the dew is but a cool kiss…these are gifts of Indian Summer.
