Short Poems

zinnia-bouquet

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

*

dragonfly rests
for a moment
on the tree branch
long enough for me
to see each wing

*

reading the poets
of my parents’
generation
their voices
return

(SMILE, 2010)

*

timeless summer day
I don’t know how old
these plants are . . .

Collage Photo Challenge: Daylilies

Collage – I took some photos this afternoon, when the sky was grey and there were a few raindrops.  The orange color was a beautiful contrast.  Then just now, I noticed the late afternoon light.  Here are four photos from these different moments.
