OH Tannenbaum

thirty years tall
you carry our Christmas wishes
all the way to the stars

A Winter Radiance

here a rainbow rises
of colored branches
behold this halo of joy


a potent joy
in the brightness
of crabapples

Nana’s Dooryard Garden

her welcome
always joyous
and abundant

Not Done Yet

sweet September
unwilling to let
summer’s party fade away

Morning’s Song

voices raised
in joyous praise
birds greet the day


cacophony of colors
a wild flowering
abandoned to joy

Joyous Cacophony

bleeding hearts
tambourine the wind
allium and iris
sing solo notes

Rhapsody of Yellow and Red

primerose bloom
made tangilbe
