They Remember Youth

the old rose
and the old barn
share an elegance of aging

Cathy’s Chrysanthemums

her spirit visits
each year bringing us
flowers to remember her with

Abridged

time crosses slowly
December’s snowy bridge
sojourn to the far side of remembering

Remembered

forget me not
the gentlest reminder of
the enormity of tiny pleasures

Gleaming

traverse the inevitable darkness
in honor of the gleaming
of the morning sun

Recollection

DSC03518
A memory floated by
on the afternoon’s breeze –
of sweet long ago days
and basking in your spirit.
