The Day’s Devotional

every pause
for beauty
is a prayer of gratitude

Stillness And Then Departure

remnants of the wasp nest
disintegrating leaves
upon a bed of departing snow

Still Life

vibrancy
and demise
juxtaposed by light

Still Life’s Motion


what holds
the snowflake to the leaf
but hope and faithful buoyancy

Breaking Out Of Darkness

a shaft of light settles
on the blue diamond delphinium
saved from the pounding rain

Still Life


the river
pauses to admire
the bloom

Nature’s Love Affair


wildflowers arranged themselves
for the pleasure of
the mountain’s view

The Crabapples


painted
by sunlight
on black velvet shadow
