Nana’s Dooryard Garden


her welcome
always joyous
and abundant

Abiding Love

 
so many hearts
as much love
as the world needs

And Your Heart Skips A Beat


sweet as a kiss
upon your cheek
pink tulip’s bloom

Kiss Me Over The Garden Gate


at the flower’s
request
love and affection

Love’s Labor


tools
of tending and caring
await their service

No Need To Ask


no longer here
yet everywhere
you are not forgotten

Emergence


mandala of hearts
on the mill stone
loving what is

Freed Masonry


the rock wall
grew a monument
to love and loss and living

My Darling Rose


wild grows
my perennial love
her precious winter bloom

Inside


we gather
together in the warmth
of each other

In Love


red poppies
in dappled light
kisses from the garden

The Garden’s Valentine

each spot of red
a beloved’s kiss
such adoration bestowed

Dendrites

wisdom grown
of fear or love
the web becomes the path

Steadfast in Love
