At One Eighty Three

if tranquility
had an entrance
it would be this

Savoring The Sunshine


summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

View Of The Gate That Does Not Open


look past and beyond
the overgrown and closed
and see all that is

To End Is To Begin

fell on New Year’s Day
shadows came and had their say

Picnic

the table’s cloth
is made of snow
and set with sun

Saturated

a bluing sky
intensifies
the turning of the trees

autumn colors
creep up from behind
nine lives are not enough

Doormen

dahlias at the gate
ushering us into the world
welcoming us home
