window in my study

window in my study
trees and sky
through the seasons
and years

the view changes
and yet the same

and a place to read

colors of books go well
with art on the walls

and also how they
were created
cover art and design

poems

poems can tell stories
they might begin in one place
and by the end of the poem
the poet and reader
are in another place
a poem can also save
one moment like a photo
as one season grows
to another – the beauty
of this day
