By The River In July

thirsty fields
some much needed rain

Cows In The Pasture

however far away
place holders
for a summer’s day

You Can (But You Can’t) Fence Me In

the dandelions corralled
but their wishes
cannot be contained

The River Free

the river desires movement
and uses all its wiles
to dodge stillness

Becoming One

the temperature rises
snow becomes fog
the universe dissolves into itself

Afternoon With Cows

we bask
in autumn light
as time floats by

At Summer’s Edge

down by the river
the susans and goldenrod

Watching The Clouds Parade

this rightful place
at river’s edge
near summer’s end

Still Life

the river
pauses to admire
the bloom

River Crossing

ripples reveal
the zig zag ways
of paddling paws

Engineering Work

the dam’s
first structural component
carefully selected and prepared

Serenity At The Oxbow

the river’s clarity
a love poem
to stillness

Time’s Sculpture

every edge
sharpened by cold
carving it’s shape into air

Rain In The River

hurries the river
ever increasing her curves
