Totem Of The Downed Tree

broken walrus tusk

Solitude


I gave
my heart to nature
now I am never alone

Holiness Seen


tiny white outline
halo
on hallowed leaf

Two Came Together


summertime visit
from dear friends
long departed

Consciousness Born


intention
of contemplation
is transformation

Mountain Chime


weather is
the bell ringer
calling all to worship

Microcosm of the Universe


marsh made
mandala
the cosmos arose

Life Asks Of Us


tattered feather
more precious now
for all it has given

Prayer Flags


the birch in worship
waving her prayer flags
for us

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

to place a reminder of faith
