Wood From Wood

and so the mushroom
the tree’s rings of life

No Two The Same

the magic symmetry
of each individual design
seen by the naked eye

Winter Outerwear

the forest
wears a brocade cape
of leaves and fruit and vines

More Precious For The Wear

even as life
takes from us
our beauty remains

Fallen Maple

we will remember
her sweetness
when she warms us
this winter

Sugar Wood

stacked last July
in hopes and preparation
for this year’s syrup making

We Don’t Let The Weather Slow Us Down

of tractor seats
adorn the family barn
