paints with a soft brush
the sunny union
of the zinnia and the butterfly

The Butterfly’s Season

’round the blossoms
courting beauty

Will You Find Your Way To Being A Butterfly

living inside
nourished with parsley
tended by humans

Like Lovers Parting

monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun


The butterfly, cow and flower
conferring beauty
on the day

Quiet Roar Of The Eastern Tiger

she carries
pollen on her back
and creation on her wings

Counterparts And Wings

on the thistle
the soft atop the bristle

More Precious For The Wear

even as life
takes from us
our beauty remains

Dahlias In The Background

bookends of summer
monarchs on

Pause for Refreshment

zinnia nectar
most delicious afternoon

Amongst The Blooms The Wing-ed Ones

beyond the porch rail
butterfly and hummingbird
make their morning rounds

Butterfly Alighted

small moment
the day

Portrait of Summer

eternal rock
seasonal bloom
a passing butterfly
