one new flower begins
on the cactus

and timeless thoughts

Christmas morning

before dawn . . .

S  erene and sure
T  rust
A  long the

R  oad of faith

Short Sun Poems

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

in golden light

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

small branch growing
from the old tree trunk

two red tulips
lean towards sun
perennial friends

wind uplifting
the branches of trees

the same poems
for the rest of my life
stars and tree branches
another sunrise

“patterns on my floor” was published by Time of Singing poetry journal, Spring 2011.

These are a few of the poems you enjoyed last year, as I begin again here in 2020.

Spring will return
here and there
and then I’ll say
“When did this happen?”

Today, though, I rest
in longer light
on evergreens
in a tiny bit of wind

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

February 25, 2019

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

and planning
the week
what will grow
what should rest
