Sweet Perfection

make mine
two scoops
of chocolate dahlia

How Autumn Starts

branches
reintroduce themselves
one tiny flare of red

The River The Sunlight And Wind

painted an abstract
capturing
the whole of life

The Reeds Swear Sovereignty

late summer
wears a crown of wood
nobility of trees

Lurker

there’s Joe-Pye weed
peeking
in the window

Perspicacity

beneath waterlily clouds
the heron contemplates
elusive perceptions


Water’s Geometry

a point drops
and races into a line
to become a circle

At Once Twice Seen

water lily’s
doppelgänger
pierces the pond
