Solitude


I gave
my heart to nature
now I am never alone

Letting The Light In


through vulnerabilities
we meet each other
and find ourselves

Storm Window


mountains of snow
gather on each pane
showing us this storm’s terrain

Time Tags Light


shadows chase
late afternoon
through the woods

They Stand In Solidarity


the tree trunk curtseys
to the power and durability
of rock and stone

Keeping Company


the garden shed
and branch bench
share the wait for spring

Faint Light


the woods
hold onto night
and cast it into a dark day

Parallel Purposes


stretched across the landscape
train tracks and phone lines
corn rows and pasture fences

Mystery Of Snow


cloaked in cold
insulated by the thing
from the thing

Climb A Tree


cross the lake
scale the mountain
touch the sky

The River Free

the river desires movement
and uses all its wiles
to dodge stillness

Landscape Tapestry


time’s shuttle
weaving
branches, reeds, weeds

Flowers From My Beloved


the sky
blossoms
into night

Distant Snow


as our weather rises and shifts
winter still holds fast
to the horizon
