Dress Up Just For Yourself

ordinary rock
adorned with
lichen lace ruffle

Atop The Rock

alone
while together
with everything

David Hockney’s Water

deep in the woods
in the small brook
his paint brush paints

They Stand In Solidarity


the tree trunk curtseys
to the power and durability
of rock and stone

Mystery Of Snow


cloaked in cold
insulated by the thing
from the thing

This December’s Interval


rock, leaf, ice, snow
elements and artifacts
underfoot

Nature’s Time


flowering sundial
it’s gnomon
the coulds

They Meet Each Spring


enduring rock
perpetual phlox
kindreds

In Endless Variation And Subtlety


mighty granite
displays so many grays
in the shale of the palisades

Kiss Me Over The Garden Gate


at the flower’s
request
love and affection

Granite and Lichen


ancient friends
in company since
the beginning of time
