A Long Way From Home

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

Trio Of Pairs

sunshine clapboards and goldenrod
pink hibiscus and joe pye weed
shingled roofs with pine needles and clean

Come In

at the front door
flowers will
greet your feet

Through The Darkness

the world awaited us
growing and blooming
summoning us back home

Recluse in ClapBoard

shy yellow house
her sun blinded window eyes
squinting through the blooms

We Gather Near The Hearth As

tiny flakes
of a big snow
fall on our little house

Small Dog Big World

the place between
the call of the wild
and being called home
