Cardinal


sighting you
brings delight
as deep as your color

Seen From Above


heaven’s clouds recognize
the tiny speck
as the church’s steeple

Two Came Together


summertime visit
from dear friends
long departed

No Longer A Stranger


in nature found
a reacquaintance
with self

Taking It In


sunning yourself
on the fencepost
spirit in light

Wild Flowers With Fence


the spot where
spirit meets
with daily life

No Need To Ask


no longer here
yet everywhere
you are not forgotten

The Maple’s Ghost


floated by
gracefully entering
the next dimension

Cheered On


the faltering spirit
finds footing and support
in the solace of the garden

Ma Donna

Madonna appeared
in a cairn of stones
offering prayer and blessing

Four Fields

the spirit farmer’s
ephemeral harvest
is autumn light

Nearness

Tim
seeks me
in the garden

small
white
butterfly

always
hovering
nearby

Ghost
that I glimpse
from the side of my eye

Darting through blossoms
resting on leaves
Taking advantage of sunshine and breeze

Pointing out a shapely cloud
waiting on my mailbox
inquisitive antenna cocked

Reminding me
as mortality
rages on

death
is not
the final stop
