They Meet Each Spring


enduring rock
perpetual phlox
kindreds

A Subtle Flourish


above
last year’s leaves
a complexity of delight

Bright Spot


early and delicate
light rises
from the dark ground

My Darling Rose


wild grows
my perennial love
her precious winter bloom

Traveler’s Joy


Darling of the door yard garden
clematis climbs up and along the picket fence;
most brilliant and ingenious buttercup.
