Birch Bark Mushroom


decomposition
a transition of
sustenance to self

Vestiges


nestled between
the snow and log
late fall’s remains

Oak And Heuchera Juxtaposed


rain revealed
a still purple leaf
preserved by cold

Light In The Leaves


shining like gold
glowing like embers
light is life

Motion


the leaves and the grasses
even the very air
dancing to winter’s tune

The Other Cabbage Rose


paradox of the purple bloom
petals holding both
snow and sun

The Maple That Is Sunshine


like splashes
of the sun
fall’s fine finish

Circle Of Life


all
woven together
departure and arrival

The Leaves’ Lullaby


a song
made of silence
in the falling hush

Halloween Bunting


banners wave
the hunting party gathers
to stalk their candy prey

Magnificence


I gloried
in the maple
taking her color as my strength

The Princess Tree


voluminous pink
in every shade and hue
adorned her

Concentration


a potent joy
in the brightness
of crabapples

The Dear Nearness Of The Wilderness


miles of mountains
populated only by trees
as it should be

Watercolored World


the edges
between everything
dissolving
