The Yard In Autumn

leaves and light
on the lawn

Quickly The Mood Of Each Moment Shifts

light and shadow
chase each other
across the landscape

The River In September

the deepening
of green and blue
expands the view

View Of The Gate That Does Not Open

look past and beyond
the overgrown and closed
and see all that is


in stone
and petaled forms
a nobility of beauty

Vicarious Warmth

far off
in the distance
four fields bathe in the sun

Storm Window

mountains of snow
gather on each pane
showing us this storm’s terrain

Borrowed View

flowering frame
a passageway
into the garden’s delights

The Garden Bench

in morning shade
a summer day unfold

Calling Forth Green

the snow and clouds
evergreens conjure spring

Storm Upon Snow

always something different
in the same view
vision’s infinity

Moving Pictures

the day
unfurls itself
between the fence rails
