Another Gift Freely Given


a generous benefactor
the forest’s shade
on a hot summer day

The Princess Tree


voluminous pink
in every shade and hue
adorned her

To Be Chosen


flowers await
their moment
in the sun

Summer’s Best Friend


take shelter
in the sweet shade
of the dear old tree

The Garden At Noon


from the shade
I take a long drink
of her colors

Everything Rises


as morning sidles
to the edge of the garden
the gingko bows to the day

The Garden Bench


in morning shade
watching
a summer day unfold

Trust


enter the mystery
of today’s
exquisite unknown

Moving Pictures


the day
unfurls itself
between the fence rails

Bright Spot


early and delicate
light rises
from the dark ground

Finding Purpose


seeking sun when young
making shade with age
the garden’s straw hat

Maple on Birch


at meadow’s edge
maple turns
summer’s page

Stand Out


spotlight of sun
backdrop of woodland shade
flowering stalk takes a star turn
