The Cup Runneth Over

a carpet of sunshine
beneath the azure sky

The Queen’s Roadside Court

at her command
buttercup and thistle’s
pomp and circumstance

On The Night Stand

like a candle keeping
the dark, bitter winter
at bay


lupin shared their secrets
of beauty, bloom and seed
summer spread across the field


Shinning yellow
beacon of summer
buttercup is a kiss from the sun

Traveler’s Joy

Darling of the door yard garden
clematis climbs up and along the picket fence;
most brilliant and ingenious buttercup.
