To Dine On Beauty


oh to hover in the flowers
and sip the sweetness
from every one

Poppies


cacophony of colors
a wild flowering
abandoned to joy

The Garden At Noon


from the shade
I take a long drink
of her colors

Look


two bright poppy eyes
one wears shade
mascara-ed stamens

In Love


red poppies
in dappled light
kisses from the garden

Outside

trees tell
tales of freedom
outside the garden fence

Poppy Tops

thrice she gives…
this flower after the bloom
and then her rain of seed

Petal Prayers

DSC02155
pink petaled benediction
blessed the time and tending
of the garden’s enduring grace
