Brightened By

love letter
from a long lost paramour
color inside March’s monochrome


head on
mother nature’s shoulder
respite from the world

Garden Table

tucked between
the old tree and flower bed
wrought iron respite

Cheered On

the faltering spirit
finds footing and support
in the solace of the garden


navigating stillness
by the paddle drip’s song
peace within reach

Between the Field and the Clouds

with the crop given
the field speaks to the clouds
of respite and restoration
