Watercolored World


the edges
between everything
dissolving

Fleeting Forever


kindling beauty
the birch branch pile
nature’s ephemeral immortality

Telling Time


fence slat
sun dial
spring’s high noon

Start


tiny specks of green
cultivating all of spring
profundity of small sensibilities

The Usefulness Of Everything


bark, branch and leaf
pay their debt to the earth
with themselves

Prayer Flags


the birch in worship
waving her prayer flags
for us

Held

beneath the bark
one birch’s dark night
held sacred by the grove

each leaf
in their own time
glory then the fall

Dream Land

in the terrain of dreams
every worm and woodpecker hole
is a passageway to the realm beyond
