If Summer Could Go On Forever


sunflowers would
shine their cheerful light
through winter’s dark night

Essential Elements

steel heron
waits by stone bowl
filled with rain

Still Jumping

a merry band
of cheerfulness
still jumping mid-summer

Garden Party

hollyhock corsage
every one is invited
to summer’s dance

The Frog Overseer


from his porch perch
supervising
summer’s bloom

Cows In The Pasture

however far away
place holders
for a summer’s day

Old Structures Reminisce


behind the arbor and gazebo
berries blush recalling
memories of summer kisses

Too Soon To Say Goodbye


like summer
we linger
by the fencepost

At Summer’s Edge


down by the river
the susans and goldenrod
commune

Not Done Yet


sweet September
unwilling to let
summer’s party fade away

Watching The Clouds Parade


this rightful place
at river’s edge
near summer’s end

Meadow Surf


swells of color
summer’s current
these flowering wave sets

Summer’s Best Friend


take shelter
in the sweet shade
of the dear old tree

The Garden At Noon


from the shade
I take a long drink
of her colors

Celestial Pageantry


parade
of clouds
celebrates summer

The Garden Bench


in morning shade
watching
a summer day unfold
