Parting Days

there is still enough warmth in the sun
to want to rock on the porch a bit


The brightest colors
are put on display
when royalty visits.


A blossom speaks my prayer for me.
May I share my best
and leave a legacy of loveliness.

The Artist

Indian Paintbrush colors the meadow
with embers of sunset.


Marigold is the sun’s bride,
the guardian of goodness
at the garden’s gate.
