Family Of Pines


distinct yet together
beside each other
through all

No Longer A Stranger


in nature found
a reacquaintance
with self

In The White Quietude


like fresh snow
tranquility settled
over everything

Together


every beauty
was compounded
because we shared it

Complement


mighty angular pine
diminutive curved bridge
a companionship of counterparts

The Roots of Memory


singular pine
recording the history
of the mountain

Tiny Are All Beginnings


at the crest
of a moss mountain
a pine begins

Maple Blush


the landscape wears
a rosy glow
arousing all of spring

Humility

flakes as light as air
and still the humble pine
bows deeply to winter

You Again, Wise Friend

the look that speaks
an instruction
to be true

Luminous Flux

in the forest room
a chandelier of ice
whose switch plate is the sun
