In The Valley Of The Lily

everything extending
the last of their essence
veritas of beauty

Last Hurrah

regardless
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
commune

Trinity In The Vetch


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

Afterlife


ghosts of summer
seeding the future
with their return

Lighted By A Flowering Torch


summer dims
yet light shines on
in the garden
