You Can (But You Can’t) Fence Me In

the dandelions corralled
but their wishes
cannot be contained

Wonderment


sunlight sparkles on water
snowflakes descend to greet it
all kinds and conditions of magic

Thanksgiving


blessings bestowed
in sunshine and snow
great gratitude for all that is given

Eyewitness


taking in the scene
the season’s change
to brown from green

At Summer’s Edge


down by the river
the susans and goldenrod
commune

Savor The Day


some summer fun
cooling off the hooves
while strolling the brook

Into The Deep


dive into
delphinium’s
blue depths

Last One In


propelled
by Mom’s encouragement
first swim

Homeward Bound


water’s purpose
to be ever
rushing home

Reigning Beauty


this day
heaven sent
we are drenched
in peace and beauty

Everything At Once


each element
finds the perfect place
next to all the rest

In That Space


between the leaves
and their reflection
resides consciousness
