In The Valley Of The Lily

everything extending
the last of their essence
veritas of beauty

Last Hurrah

of the wear and tear
still exuding joy

On And On And On

in a cosmos
of flowers
timelessness found

Summer Blooms Summon Fall

the garden’s call of color
an invitation
to the leaves to turn

At Summer’s Edge

down by the river
the susans and goldenrod

Trinity In The Vetch

sturdy, cheerful, simplicity
such grows in wild abandon
self-seeding beauty


ghosts of summer
seeding the future
with their return

Lighted By A Flowering Torch

summer dims
yet light shines on
in the garden
