If Summer Could Go On Forever

sunflowers would
shine their cheerful light
through winter’s dark night


autumn’s intensity
of color and light
renews my spirit

Savoring The Sunshine

summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

Circle Of Life

every ending
ushers in
the next beginning

Now The Light Slants Towards September

shadows grow longer
the birdhouse stands empty
the quiet of fall approaches

Morning At The Farm

first light caresses
the corn, flowers and barn
blessings of the new day

Morning Meadow

night is banished
now is
light’s time to play


in uncertainty
I can only steer
by faith

Morning Sun

light bright enough
to rouse
all sleeping seeds


in the right light
from even the worn and humble
beauty emanates

Midnight Snack

dawn light reveals
the wandering path
of a nocturnal browse

Letting The Light In

through vulnerabilities
we meet each other
and find ourselves

Time Tags Light

shadows chase
late afternoon
through the woods

A Pink Orange Sigh

between night’s descent
and the sleeping earth
resides the colored breath of light

Winter Light

illuminating absences
and the infinite detail
of what is left behind

Morning Light

the sun’s warming glow
breaks through darkness
and into the cold of woods
