OH Tannenbaum

thirty years tall
you carry our Christmas wishes
all the way to the stars

You Can (But You Can’t) Fence Me In

the dandelions corralled
but their wishes
cannot be contained

Dandelion Road

not yet fully formed
our hopes and wishes
accompany us

Hope Surrounds Us

the snow
fell like stars
white blanket of wishes


like dandelion wishes
snow flies and floats
congregating in expectation


Trees wish for rain and sun
a gentle wind, the song of birds
room to breathe and time to grow

Glory of the Ordinary

most darling and daring of weeds
the yellow sun that wishes grow upon.
