Ricochet Of Loveliness

phlox white clouds
the sky echos
the garden’s bloom

Spring Fling

the rock garden
a riot of color
bursting into bloom

Hummingbird Moth


hovering
without the hum
unfeathered fuzzy one

They Meet Each Spring


enduring rock
perpetual phlox
kindreds

Butterfly Alighted

small moment
enlarges
the day

Phlox Individuated


as blossoms wane
every member’s value
in the cluster grows

Slow Rising


the earth awoke
with tiny blooms
as tulips trumpet spring

Aperitif

last of the phlox
the final sips
of summer sustenance
