Morning Sun


light bright enough
to rouse
all sleeping seeds

Keeping Company


the garden shed
and branch bench
share the wait for spring

They Meet Each Spring


enduring rock
perpetual phlox
kindreds

Illumination


lantern by
the flowering tree
beauty is the light

Friendly Face


the daffodil
shares her smile
offering much needed cheerfulness

Becoming


nothing
to do
but right now

Delectatio


nothing is neutral
everything
is on its way

White Capped Green Mountains


snow in retreat
to the highest elevation
as spring advances

Restoration


leaves to unfurl
songs to sing
spring’s beginnings

Chosen By Light


the sun’s light
shifts towards spring
expired blooms bloom again

In April


in earthen beds
beneath another snow
seeds shake off their sleeping caps
