They Remember Youth

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

Blue Only At The Edges

anomaly
of the blue diamond
a new perfection

The Past, The Present, The Future


the garden’s rose bouquet
holding and offering the blooms of
yesterday, today and tomorrow

She Persists


the celebratory nature
of the garden persists
despite winter’s imposed dormancy

The Other Cabbage Rose


paradox of the purple bloom
petals holding both
snow and sun
