High Summer

the sun at her zenith
the shade deepens
all things ever balancing

Wander The Garden

the spirit restores
finding the space of place
along gracious paths

Happenings In Forest Time

sunshine makes for shade
as the river flows
and mushrooms grow

Communion

oh to rest
in the sheltering wisdom
of the old, old tree

On A Hot Summer Day

the watering can
builds confidence
amongst the flowers

Shelter From The Blistering Sun

our beloved tree
a great green umbrella
offering shade and sanctuary

The Three

the same
while still
distinctly self realized

Flock Of Trillium

in they flew
on angel wings
or so it seems

If Summer Could Go On Forever


sunflowers would
shine their cheerful light
through winter’s dark night

Savoring The Sunshine


summer has not yet
opened the gate
to fall

Another Gift Freely Given


a generous benefactor
the forest’s shade
on a hot summer day

The Princess Tree


voluminous pink
in every shade and hue
adorned her

To Be Chosen


flowers await
their moment
in the sun

Summer’s Best Friend


take shelter
in the sweet shade
of the dear old tree

The Garden At Noon


from the shade
I take a long drink
of her colors

Everything Rises


as morning sidles
to the edge of the garden
the gingko bows to the day
