They Remember Youth

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

Blue Only At The Edges

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
