Morning Light

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

Lighting The Way

winter raised
her red flamed torches
showing us the path

Light In The Leaves

shining like gold
glowing like embers
light is life

Green Centurions

regiment of pines
establishing the frontline
in the waning autumn light

Halloween Bunting

banners wave
the hunting party gathers
to stalk their candy prey

Holiness Seen

tiny white outline
on hallowed leaf


finally seen
the exit
from darkness

Fall Approaches

as everything changes
keep flowering
as long as you can

This Humble Paradise

pause and let
time expand into
beauty’s forever unfolding

When The Senses Become One

lamb’s ear
to light

Breaking Out Of Darkness

a shaft of light settles
on the blue diamond delphinium
saved from the pounding rain

Everything Rises

as morning sidles
to the edge of the garden
the gingko bows to the day


in the gathering darkness
inexplicably arrives
the light of hope


lantern by
the flowering tree
beauty is the light

More Light Later But

winter still
is hunkered down
in the dooryard
