sudden storm

interesting
how a day
can begin
one way
and then change
suddenly
skies are dark
power is lost
for a moment
rain . . .

and then
I open a window
a little
raindrops
glisten

and the same
birds sing again

sunrise
hints of watercolor rose
through the window blind
and bird songs

From July 2014:

sunrise
light on new green growth
of evergreens

winds and warmth
summer reaching its fullness
after the longest day
in the North

short poems from my summer archives

windmills gently turn longest day passed me by

another idea:

days grow shorter now
gentle turning
of windmills

late June
each green leaf
a silent word

country cemetery
trumpet vines
growing taller
than the gravestones

Time Of Singing
Summer 2012

* * *

summer warmth
dairy cows
nap in fields

* * *

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

* * *

afternoon light
blue-grey skies
and water

give them a stage
to shine
seagulls
