Mighty monolith
I stop on the forest path
Turn and gaze in awe

Fine feathered fellow
So regal in appearance
Song belies fierceness

Oh, look how the wild things grow
Neath the blue mountains

This tree is enrobed
Winter's translucent garment
Shiver at the thought

Carries a cargo of trees
Across blue oceans

To see breathtaking vistas

Unimagined yet

Relaxed but alert
Ready to eat or to mate

Lusty purple shaft
Delicate orange chalice
We are mates, we are

The jumble of Fall’s remains
My crunching steps pause

Show three of four elements

With or without me

Takes my eyes on a journey
Give ‘em back when done

Horses trot the strand
On this balmy summer day
I languid gaze... yawn

Backdrop for autumn colours
My back ashiver

Quiet now, be still
Your hysterical laughter
May scare away fish

Along the empty highway

Meditation stops

Bursts forth through spicules of ice

In this glorious presence

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MA
ON YOUR 90th

The beauty of this flower
Shows not all my love

Sometimes the palette
More pleasing than the painting
Gets our attention

Icy bearded mouth
I watch your wide open maw
Swallow up the heat

Like the one I see today
London Bridge fell down

Beyond the deep blue water

Waves of curvaceous color
I walk through heaven

Frozen Boughs

Snow in the tree top
No wind blows, no boughs will break
No cradle will fall
