They Meet Each Spring

enduring rock
perpetual phlox

A Subtle Flourish

last year’s leaves
a complexity of delight

Bright Spot

early and delicate
light rises
from the dark ground

My Darling Rose

wild grows
my perennial love
her precious winter bloom

Traveler’s Joy

Darling of the door yard garden
clematis climbs up and along the picket fence;
most brilliant and ingenious buttercup.
