Nootka rose 2

Slow bright fullness

Circle, arc, silver, dark

Spring moon and wild rose

Soft Afternoon, Mary’s Peak   Leave a comment

Landmark marked out, yet

the tanager knows she’s home

an ocean-sent breeze

Meet Me on the Green   Leave a comment

Fitton Green

Generous drape of

clouds, ample reach of a tree

where the iris blooms

Wild iris

What do the waving ferns say?   Leave a comment

Fern edges

                                                                     They whisper, they coax.

                                                                     A cloud moves, and the shadow goes deep.

                                                                     When you bend on knee at their appeal,

                                                                     They pull

                                                                     You under dizzying spell.

                                                                     Pulse of in-and-out edges

                                                                     Reminds you to breathe.

Eye of the stars

Weaving bits of broken light

A fallen feather

Part of the beauty

of all winged things is knowing

soon they will fly

Dogwood bracts and blooms

Here on campus

Reflecting on young spring flocks

Adrift in the field

Dream Me   7 comments

Woodpecker Loop, Finley Wildlife Refuge

Woodpecker Loop, Finley Wildlife Refuge

Looking over the overlook

Walking the boards of the old boardwalk

Casting cares under the overcast

And letting the day dream me
