sending curves into curls
and polka dots popping

Greeting Everything Where It Is


she opened
her beauty
in every direction

at the tulip stop sign
the magic flowering carpet
waits for travelers to board

summer stalwart
holding up the sky
fending off fall

a brief

is measured
by the lily’s shadow

in the fading light
accompany day into night

Communion


A blossom speaks my prayer for me.
May I share my best
and leave a legacy of loveliness.

Splendid is the smattering
of red upon pink petals
freckle faced lily
enchanting girl of the garden
