Petunia In November

turning her face
away from the cold
to shine just one more day

Sweet Perfection

make mine
two scoops
of chocolate dahlia

Last Hurrah

regardless
of the wear and tear
still exuding joy

Monarch Lessons

when buffeted
by life’s breezes
hold fast to the bloom

Big Cat Little Cat

orange tiger
in the garden
prowling amongst blooms

The Butterfly’s Season

floating
’round the blossoms
courting beauty

A Catchy Tune

summer serenades with colors
one can’t help
but sing along


A Blush Before Blooming

shy buds
gathering the confidence
to bloom
