Summer’s Bounty

Summer’s Bounty

Bees float over lawn,

search for a spot

with small white clover.

Goldfinch’s yellow feathers

flash in large catmint

where it sits like a queen

on top of stalk to feast

on plant’s tiny seeds.

In the heart of summer

each creature secures

sustenance from the bounty

this season brings.

Early April & Announcement

Early April

In strengthening spring sun

last remnants of snow dissolve –

drip from roof’s edges,

form rivulets along path.

Robins arrive in garden, search

for worms under decaying leaves.

Sprouts of daffodils stretch

their long, green limbs upwards

as if to gather armfuls

of shimmering solar rays.

All Systems Go & Announcement

Purple Crocus

All Systems Go

The shine of quarter moon

fades into new light

from fire of rising sun.

Mist, a white shroud,

hovers as a gaseous vapor

above lake’s thinning ice.

Nature puts on the other shoe

with all systems set

to go towards spring.

Contemplating Spring

Three Tulips Opening

Contemplating Spring
The cycle of seasons

moves slowly forward.

In night’s final hour

Aurora sweeps her long skirt,

shimmering with colors,

across the wide horizon.

As dawn calmly blinks open,

we patiently wait for

short days to lengthen,

spring’s new light to arrive.
