Poem

geraniums

cooler weather and strong winds
all the leaves falling and we see the shapes of trees
light streams into the house as the sun moves south
red geraniums still bloom
October turns to face November

light falls
through yellow maple leaves
the mercy of God

Two Poems

to the store
on old beloved roads
light and wind
through fields of corn
birds fly together

(2013)

so many years
since my father
lived on this earth

yet when I was
in town again
this summer

even with so much
change

I thought

he would still
know his way
home

(2016)

Poems and Photo

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books

*

afternoon light
blue-grey skies
and water

give them a stage
to shine
seagulls

*

another day
of grace
settling down
towards sunset
seagulls rest on water

*

“another day” was published in Sea Bandits, edited by Aubrie Cox (2012), at YAY WORDS!
