The Steel Heron Presides

ah April
with her sunshine and snow
everything waiting to see which way it goes

Three Of Them

despite cold
and lack of mud
here is happiness

Morning Paradox

dawn’s delicacy
the bitter cold


a big snow
in December
beloved normalcy

Main Street

magnificent maples
by the white picket fence
autumn Americana

Unexpected Snow

trees still wearing
their autumn colors
put on a shawl of white

Snail’s Pace

gorgeous October days
ever so slowly
we tuck the garden in



into the misty unknown
carry your dreams
while seeking the sun

Field Colleague

we share a moment
then take off
to our work

Savoring The Sunshine

summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

Feverfew By The Fence

the second bloom
an insurance
of immortality

Queen Anne and Goldenrod

the meadow
a fall display

Essential Elements

steel heron
waits by stone bowl
filled with rain

House Wren On The Garden Rail

where to stay?
when all the world
is home

The Frog Overseer

from his porch perch
summer’s bloom

Raspberry Crabapple

beneath a bower
of blossoms
