Good Manners

with the merest dip
of a curtsey
clematis greets the day

What Wandering Reveals

the worn path
a line of desire
made known

In Absence Presence

away and yet
with everything
a link in divinity’s chain

The Size Of Time

the herd
dwarfed by trees
nature’s hierarchy of scale

Spring Tracery

the grand design
each leaf and petal
in it’s perfect place

A Reunion Of Experience

the old barn
amongst new leaves
each teaching the other

Conversation Between Seasons

a stand of white birch
call back
to the snow capped mountain

Trees Thinking About Leaves

encouraged
by the evergreens
tiny buds plump themselves
