In The Valley Of The Lily

everything extending
the last of their essence
veritas of beauty

Early Departure

each hole
a doorway where
life passes through

A Long Way From Home

deep in the forest
in the dark and the silence
a coral reef grew

Wood From Wood

and so the mushroom
replicates
the tree’s rings of life

Monarch Lessons

when buffeted
by life’s breezes
hold fast to the bloom

Big Cat Little Cat

orange tiger
in the garden
prowling amongst blooms

Althea

a bit of a strumpet
flaunting her trumpet
enticing hummingbirds and bees
