Forest Farolitos

on the forest floor
pine luminaries

A Long Way From Home

deep in the forest
in the dark and the silence
a coral reef grew

The Umbrella’s Underneath

by a fairy
after the down pour

Microscopic Astronauts

the ground grew
a space station ready
to launch spores into flight


the gentle landscape
rising and falling
showing us how

Happenings In Forest Time

sunshine makes for shade
as the river flows
and mushrooms grow

Golden Goblet

for the fairies banquet
fresh rain water served
with a leaf stem straw

Conversation Between Seasons

a stand of white birch
call back
to the snow capped mountain

Listening For The March Wind

standing with
a stand of trees
sensing the sap rise
