Like Lovers Parting

monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun


autumn’s intensity
of color and light
renews my spirit

Frost Dodger

as summer wanes
each flower more precious
for the precariousness

Circle Of Life

every ending
ushers in
the next beginning

In These Times

delicate bloom
in a vast sky

Contemplating Life

a good companion
is the flower
full of quiet and complexities

Morning Glory

I fly in your sky
and swim in
your ocean of blue


being both
demure and extravagant
she beguiles


an explosion of orange
sending curves into curls
and polka dots popping

A Complexity Of Symmetry

circle upon circle
the center
echos the edges

Fall Preparations

room in the cheeks
room in the stash house
work to be done

Pink Moon

made of cotton candy
glowing all the day
sweet bella luna

Still Jumping

a merry band
of cheerfulness
still jumping mid-summer

The Petunia Looking Back

deep inside
a piercing
green eye

Counterparts And Wings

on the thistle
the soft atop the bristle

Exceeding Expectations

deemed ordinary
delivering a spectacle
oh the muchness of marigolds

Tender Hearted

amidst her silver foliage
fine and fancy hearts
on the garden’s sleeve

Just After The Sun Rose

a fairy
flew by
trailing magic
