Sparkle


in the right light
from even the worn and humble
beauty emanates

Wonderment


sunlight sparkles on water
snowflakes descend to greet it
all kinds and conditions of magic

Here and Now


awakened by
and surrendered to
the day’s beauty

Sunday Afternoon

time is
best measured in
moments not minutes

Embossed

diamondized by dew
pink with sparkle
morning’s kiss

And

crystals and petals
drift and bloom
shimmer and flower

Snow Cones

Golden leaves filled with sparkle
a winter delicacy of the woodland fairies.

Overlooking


The water glitters and shouts as it rushes on
carrying memories of perfection from the freshness of youth.
Age tempers today’s perfection with the acceptance of impermanence
making the glitter more brilliant and the shouting more joyful.
