Good Manners

with the merest dip
of a curtsey
clematis greets the day

Summer Took Me By The Hand

and stretched before me
verdant, tender, true
as the great green meadow

Summer Comes

a window is opened in heaven
in summer waltzes
scattering shades of blue

Sweet Rise

early morning
in the bloom
innocence’ caress

Spring Tracery

the grand design
each leaf and petal
in it’s perfect place

A Reunion Of Experience

the old barn
amongst new leaves
each teaching the other

The Bloom’s Muse

a glory of tulips
the crabapple’s inspiration
to burst into bloom

Conversation Between Seasons

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

The Chairs’ View

sit awhile
and watch spring
wander over

Sleep Over

April snow spent the night
the running brook hopes
to escort her back home

Trees Thinking About Leaves

by the evergreens
tiny buds plump themselves
