Trio Of Pairs

sunshine clapboards and goldenrod
pink hibiscus and joe pye weed
shingled roofs with pine needles and clean

Microscopic Astronauts

the ground grew
a space station ready
to launch spores into flight

Alone With Everything

down the soft pine needle path
amidst the tall tall trees
the breeze accompanies me

Needles and Thread

evergreen thread
stitching together
each season to the next


flakes as light as air
and still the humble pine
bows deeply to winter
