Shelter From The Blistering Sun

our beloved tree
a great green umbrella
offering shade and sanctuary

Simple Sturdy Tradition

the old rock wall
paired with generations
of naturalizing daffodils

The Steel Heron Presides

ah April
with her sunshine and snow
everything waiting to see which way it goes

The Quiet Constance Of A Cairn

the sun
is always shining
on my memories of you

The Shadow Lace Of Bare Trees

sunshine rests
on the dormant garden’s
bench

Chasing Blue Skies

up ahead
on the trail
our scouts

Still Green

in the morning sun
turning
frost into dew

Like Lovers Parting


monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun
