The Quiet Constance Of A Cairn

the sun
is always shining
on my memories of you

Nana’s Dooryard Garden

her welcome
always joyous
and abundant

Abiding Love

so many hearts
as much love
as the world needs

And Your Heart Skips A Beat

sweet as a kiss
upon your cheek
pink tulip’s bloom

Kiss Me Over The Garden Gate

at the flower’s
love and affection

Love’s Labor

of tending and caring
await their service

No Need To Ask

no longer here
yet everywhere
you are not forgotten


mandala of hearts
on the mill stone
loving what is

Freed Masonry

the rock wall
grew a monument
to love and loss and living

My Darling Rose

wild grows
my perennial love
her precious winter bloom


we gather
together in the warmth
of each other

In Love

red poppies
in dappled light
kisses from the garden

The Garden’s Valentine

each spot of red
a beloved’s kiss
such adoration bestowed


wisdom grown
of fear or love
the web becomes the path

Steadfast in Love

grandmother apple tree
reaches out to me
pressing love and sweetness
into my hands
