The Curvature Of Color

colors
shifted and changed
as they traversed the iris’s curves

On The Night Stand


like a candle keeping
the dark, bitter winter
at bay

High in the Blue Sky


petaled turret
pink watchtower
beauty’s sentinel observes

Gladness


holding
and emanating
the lightness of being

Flowering Sundial


time
is measured
by the lily’s shadow

Hide and Seek


eight, nine, ten…
petal peeking round the corner
reveals her hiding place

Ground Control


tulip tip
rocket ship
powered by color

Iris Answers to All Names


undaunted by
a still cold wind
lavender flags fly

Interlude

time stopped
eternity unraveled
in a visit to a petal

Each Flower An Offering

every petal
a spectacle
and petition of beauty
