clouds and yet

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

patterns on my floor

patterns on my floor
moving with the breeze
sun from the West
highlights
branches of leaves

Time of Singing, Spring 2011

different shapes

different shapes
of the rose bush
and lilacs in the yard
they grew towards
the light

years go by: three poems

years go by and gift of a new Spring

years go by . . .
grateful for the
gift of a new Spring

years go by
leaves fall
time of rest
then rebirth
God’s time
not mine
