The Threshold Needs No Gate

the green archway
an invitation to
the flowering realm

Savoring The Sunshine

summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

Garden Party

hollyhock corsage
every one is invited
to summer’s dance

Summer Blooms Summon Fall

the garden’s call of color
an invitation
to the leaves to turn

Nana’s Dooryard Garden

her welcome
always joyous
and abundant

As Earth Sleeps Beneath Her Blanket Of Snow

blue sky
issues an invitation
to awaken


stepping stones
in the mossy path
invitation to the woods

At Beauty’s Behest

from the edge
of the pink woods
step into wonderland


bulb garden
in the door yard
the outside’s invitation in


the open gate
invites me
into the new day
