june cloudy after rain evening
red red geraniums
kiss’t by hummingbird’s
beak
unseen wings beating
in time

beyond belief

my footfalls on the poach

iridescent bottle green
around the yard

i turn my key

This tall tree

dams the river where it fell

washing the world

dull without dimension

sunday, april 24, 2011

the daylight almost gone

my window

half glass

half mirror

face floating in the cedar

bedpost in the fern

chandelier hangs from budding branches

dusk dark lines

sprawling up

against the lambent sky

pink dog-wood tree
rooted in the earth
graceful branches sway in the breeze
years of yearning
striving towards the sun

bottle green humming bird
beating wings floating on the air
beautiful blur
flying from flower to flower
angular actions

there for only a
moment
both of them
together
