Eyelet River


lacing the surface
cold threading
shore to shore

Trimming


the eaves
wear a tatting of ice
fastened by a shuttle of cold

Going to Seed


fragile yellow lace
sturdy blue crowns
August counterparts

Edged With Antique Lace

green field sparkles with frost
as winter takes residence
in the shadow’s depth

The Queen’s Snow

flurry
of  fluttering lace
in the quiet white light

Armament

a lace of thorns
such fierce protection
the wild rose grows

a needle prick
a spot of blood
King James’ wife’s
labor of love

Beautiful Day


A lace of branches
across the painted sky
the world is dressed up
and waiting for time to pass by.
