chive

purple flower sinks ~
bumble bee lights on a chive ~
river of summer

earth turns

May 7, 2010

dried thyme and dust ~
my shovel turns winter’s dirt ~
breath of earth at dusk ~
the sun falls behind the trees ~
morning dove and cardinal sing

satin

charmed by new leaves ~
spring wind is a satin stream ~
scented with lilacs

rain dance

May 3, 2010


blossoms, earth and water ~
spring rain drops on clover leaves ~
blissful dance begins

unraveled

May 2, 2010

every day stones rain ~
I retreat bruised and bleeding ~
wound up tight ~
barbed wire ball ~
tighter and tighter ~
until the dark sea of fatigue succumbs my fear ~
sorrow and joy unravel the tangled wire ~
my love overflows it’s earthly container ~
spilling onto the newly born earth ~
dissipating into the sunlit sky ~
touching the moon ~
shining back at me in the eyes of everyone I meet ~
undone, wounded with scars ~
I feel ~
never to retreat again

bright

April 28, 2010

full moon burning bright ~
climbing from charcoal forest ~
floats on black ink sky

yellow

April 24, 2010


a breath of sunshine ~
convergence with heaven ~
spoken in yellow ~
verdant earth speaks with the sky ~
radiant dandelion

violets

April 22, 2010


lemon sunshine sky ~
garden inhales spring’s crisp light ~
and exhales violets

rose

April 18, 2010


red stem, satin leaves ~
side by side with sticky thorns ~
nascent rose awakens
