A Place In The Sun


kissed
and surrounded
by a warm embrace

Reformation


pinked
from chilly nights
dew and disintegration

One of Many


the shadow reveals
another definition
of self

When The Senses Become One


lamb’s ear
listening
to light

Guilelessness


all of beauty’s
every sustenance
in the simple rose

Undulating Color


the garden an ocean
peony blooms as if
a sea anemone

Fledgling


first flight
first landing
parents made proud

Perfection Realized


to see her
cup the sunlight
in her perfect petals

Azalea Ablaze


taking
her moment
in summer’s spotlight

Indian Paintbrush’ed


like watercolors
prairie fire bleeds color
across the landscape

 

Illumination


lantern by
the flowering tree
beauty is the light

Her Delicate Majesty


the queen
in light and shadow
the shimmer of her flowerless crown

Set Upon By The Sun


joyful sparks
in Nonnie’s garden
columbine catch fire

Penciled In


barest
outlines of colors
before leaves unfurl

Rendezvous


perfect beginnings
the early morning
with my sweethearts

Spring Squares Off With The Summer Sun


spring bulbs
duel the sun
high noon in the garden
