Little Red Hydrant


Running I pass a

Little red hydrant all painted new.

I think to myself, how many you save,

so important are you !

Queen Anne’s Lace


The Wild flowers adorn

And capture nature’s grace with

Delicate summer’s face .

Soulful Barn


A Robin with a staccato chirp sounds alarm

As a gray rabbit scurries across the road

Into a shabby white wash painted barn

Tattered with age and a yearning presence

…of the past

Haiku


Poetry in motion

A magenta glad opens;

Grace adorns in verse.

Summer’s Arrival


I love the sun’s rays

The long and hot sultry days

With sweaty runs and sweet ice tea.

Wild Flowers


along the path of

Wine Purple thistle, white snow

faces of open blooms

smile.

Run


I am not sure what

It is that draws me to the

LOVE of nature’s run.

Crescent Moon


I wake to see a

Crescent Moon hanging just above

I look in awe as I have done so often

Stillness as quiet as the sky is black

Yet the lovely light shines on .

Tanka


I remember the light

In my grandmother’s kitchen

Something you notice,

then later you remember

how refreshing her presence.
