Waiting years to don your finery
A brief few months to live your dream
The beautiful dragonfly

Sixtieth birthday
I look into the mirror
My mother looks back

Spectators on hillside
Awaiting avian tornado
The chimney swifts return

Herons startled flight
Blue feather floating
Kayaker's treasure

Painted water
Rippling reflections
First kayaker out this morning

In the morning
The pansy's face
Washed with dew
 
 
A tear embraces an eyelash
As she steps out the door
And into her future

Guilt-induced insomnia
From hitting snooze button
Forgetting it is Saturday

Watching in slow motion
The sky: pink, orange, red
Sun melting into the sea
 
In the morning
Dew-washed pansy faces
Greet the sun

Breathing in and out
Summer's petals fall
To nature's breath


Speeding by the scenic overlook
The view awaits
The quiet walker

Ripples of moonlight
Gliding through molten gold
Solo night kayaker

Muddy puppy paws
Pet store's cage not yet filled
Quick, mom's coming!

Noisy neighborhood walk
Tangled, weedy gardens
Unexpected tinkle of windchimes

Borrowing sleep from tomorrow-

studying all night
'Exam Canceled' note on door

Tucked inside a pocket
A tiny puppy
Handful of love

Drops of dew
Moisten the throat
Of the silent calla lily
 
 
Shiver but resist
Autumn's temptation
First lighting of furnace

Late summer's rain
Tricks the parched garden
Autumn frost is in the air

Notes scribbled on a napkin
Important reminders
Thrown out with trash

Early spring-like day
The joke's on us
Rain predicted tomorrow

Warm March sun
Fools the impatient gardener
Frost expected tonight
