The Pond Opened For Song

opening ceremony
the joyful croaking chorus
of peepers peeping

The Steel Heron Presides

ah April
with her sunshine and snow
everything waiting to see which way it goes

The Shadow Lace Of Bare Trees

sunshine rests
on the dormant garden’s

Morning Reveals

of a moonlight stroll
hoof prints amidst sparkle

February Narcissus

winter gazed
upon her own reflection
in the river

Ship Masts In The Meadow

resource to
man and beast
benevolent benefactors: trees

Long Winter Days

when seemingly
nothing is happening
spring’s new world is gestating

Three Of Them

despite cold
and lack of mud
here is happiness
