The Frog Overseer


from his porch perch
supervising
summer’s bloom

Milkweed Snow


the snow
before the snow
beginnings in endings

Borrowed View


flowering frame
a passageway
into the garden’s delights

Friendly Conversation


greetings
from the tulips
as the violets wander by

Memorial Park


we sit amongst
forget me nots
and remember you

Outside Orchestra


the wind
conducts
movement’s music

Warm Memory To Store For Winter


a Saturday landscape
the playful breeze
and laughing leaves

Last Dance


summer’s
last light danced
across the lawn

Hues and Shades


morning light
the sky is painted
in clouds and white

Lengthening Green


the lawn
stretches out
like summer before us

Welcome


garden hostess
greeting all
with coral kisses

Wild Strawberries

with berries gone
leaves reminiscence
still coloring the lawn

Doormen

dahlias at the gate
ushering us into the world
welcoming us home

Undecided

elusive guest
unsure of hospitality
