The Maple

heralding
the season change
a deepening of golds to red

Rendezvous

every year they meet
at the base of the tree
their love renewed each spring

Goddess Of The Moon

outstretched
you offer your beauty
to the whole world

Totem Of The Downed Tree


whale eye
broken walrus tusk
house of spirits

They Stand In Solidarity


the tree trunk curtseys
to the power and durability
of rock and stone

Climb A Tree


cross the lake
scale the mountain
touch the sky

Flowers From My Beloved


the sky
blossoms
into night

On The Last Day Of The Year


looking into
the setting sun
farewell to the past
