Flower of Cambodia

By the rusty road
Some six pointed stars blooming
That capture my eye

Banff Springs Hotel

Stately built resort
Luring winter travelers
Headed to the slopes

Lake Wakatipu Evening

The lake has blackened
In the fading of the light
Waves lap at the shore

The floating eyeball
Inverted funnel in space
One or the other

Pink Parfait 1

Intricate beauty
Husky curved salmon petals
Contrasted with white

Sticks piled on dry land
And sticks ply the blue waters
Man’s hand is evident

Cloud 30

Swirling air mounts flow
For the sky is a river
Eddies in a stream

Can feel the rumbling
Look at her across the bay
Thar she blows and loud

Above the dusty landscape
Not for the first time

Peer Gynt.
Oh, how delightful
Petals fold back to reveal
Hidden sunshine burst

The child is father
To the man whom I will be
Teach me well my friend

In quiet harbor
Life goes on as usual
My presence intrudes

Come, open your eyes
Sun shines through afternoon clouds
Nature is at peace

I was distracted
Then you sidled into view
Grey apparition

Vibrant salmon pink
Your delicate aroma
Matches your beauty

Wat Krosang at Kep

Sit meditation
Upon lotus, beneath sky
Supple, not rigid

They came together
On Yasgur's farm in New York
Let the music play

Queenstown Waterfront 2

On thin strip of land
Hard by lake side and mountain
People make their home

I’ve no idea
What can I say about this?
It’s bea-u-ti-ful

New Year

New Year.
Yon demure blossom
Shyly makes her appearance
To our warm delight

Hibiscus blossoms
Only for this single day
Burst exuberant

Sunrise 13

Beyond moist jungle
Yon mountains of the storm king
Thor upon his throne

The Lady of the Lake

The fog has rolled in
Ready for embarkation
She gleams quietly

Shake off morning rain
And shine amidst greenery
You’re our attraction

Hybrid Tea

One of the most popular rose types, these are tall, long-stemmed roses ideal for cutting--the roses you usually see at the florist. The flowers are usually borne singly, one to a stem, rather than in clusters. Blooms have a high-center point. In the garden they are often featured as single specimens or in a traditional rose cutting garden. Many varieties reveal a beautiful rose fragrance.

In my pretty frock
Taste of what’s on my finger
Concentrated eyes

Reflection 6

Not a breath of air
Stirs the stillness of the lake
Nor the filmy sky

A wonderful world
When the saints go marchin’ in
Say hello Dolly

Wraith appears at night
With the setting of our sight
Horror comes to fright

On a garden walk
We stopped to admire you
We will come again

Wat Angpray Sary Mean Juy

It’s a tradition
To build symbols and temples
For what we can’t see
