flowers await
their moment
in the sun

Becoming


nothing
to do
but right now

the fallow field
everything in its time

A Generosity Of Patience


ever
the gracious host
chickadee awaits a turn

Forbearance


spring’s green
biding her time
beneath the ice

winter waited
at the edge
of the changing meadow

creation is constructed of
stillness and patience

to be seen

personifying patience

To Come And Go

every thing comes and everything goes
in nature’s design of time

the sumac’s reach
the destiny of spring
