used books settle
in their new home

clouds and yet

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

Two poems: patterns on my floor and tree with full leaves

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

Time of Singing, Spring 2011

tree with full leaves
providing shade
comfort of faith

Time of Singing, Summer 2012

two poems: different shapes and tiny leaves

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

tiny leaves
on trees
no prayer
in my heart
too small for God
