Red Maple Flowers

red pompoms
raised high in the deep blue sky
cheering on spring

The Shadow Lace Of Bare Trees

sunshine rests
on the dormant garden’s
bench

Peace Outside The Circle

without containment
the symbol’s power
expands

In The Time Of Gloaming

beneath the hues
of yellow, pink, lavender, blue
a tree dreams of green

Abandoned Work

half way through
and then a change
of heart or plans

Standing Ground

the wood’s grain
muscles made strong
by standing

Clarity

everything intensified
as edges and differences
make themselves known
