Blue Columbine

your color
is the baritone
of the garden’s chorus

Sound Seen


the thrum
of wings hovering
stillness in motion

Deep Listening


tuned
to the sounds
of green things growing

Cacophony

dsc03850
rustle of leaves
squeaking of trees
sounds of season change

Bees

they buzz in bubbles
beneath the ice
water is their wings

Resounds

cloisonnéd crabapple trunk
each hole a house
for woodpecker sounds

Autumn Tracks

Clickity clack away rode summer.
The whisper and crunch of leaves
is the sound of Fall’s journey.

Surface of Sound

The laughter and song of the brook
are part of the mountain’s music.
This is the surface of sound.
