Landscape Tapestry


time’s shuttle
weaving
branches, reeds, weeds

Bittersweet

in iced sunlight
brightness sweetens
the bitter cold

Garden Teachings

an instruction of
peaceful coexistence
tulips befriend the dandelions

Together

keep an eye on the road
and a head in the weeds
and bring all your quills home

Dried


Before the first flake falls
the dried wild  flower
shares a flurry of beauty.

Rest

Until the crops have given their full yield
you may rest in the high weeds with the moon flower.
When it is time to till again you will carry the full weight of a man and his dreams.
