Premium Member The Wonderful Giant Oak
The giant oak sprawled into the sky 
In pure wonderfulness her phalanges reaching
wider and farther than other oaks in the forest

Squirrels leapt from her twiggy limbs,
Barely making it sometimes, and chattering
with glee as they perpetually caught themselves

Robins, cardinals, wrens, sparrows...Read More

Wuthering,  gale held aloft by the thick forest. 
Woodpecker  drills his acorns deep into the trunk. 
Willingly,  dog noses into each trunk coming home.
Welcome,  the thick smell of pine cones.

Premium Member They Bring Me Gifts
They bring me gifts. Leaves, acorns, a flyswatter, mud off their shoes.
With big smiles and a happy attitude, they bring me gifts daily.
Yes, I am talking about the kindergarten students, the happy five’s.
And occasional sixes, who lose their front teeth...Read More

Premium Member ACORN IN THE SNOW
I saw it as I walked one day…an acorn in the snow
and I stopped for a moment to wonder…what makes this acorn grow?

What makes this little tiny seed…barely bigger than a pea…
what makes this little acorn transform into a tree?

The Last Time, I Had To See You
You sat them on an icy oak table–
the package of my father’s ashes–
like an old-fashioned box cake.

Your dusty, branch-colored fingers
gripped a pile of pearly white paper sheets
with the profiles of people you were to keep
until their relatives were ready
to let...Read More

Premium Member Things will be better
I stood in the snow frozen park
Leaned against a tree, not feeling too well
Beneath skies filled with gray clouds
I looked between the birch trees
And I saw the birds flying
I heard them singing in the stillness
Then I closed my eyes and...Read More

Premium Member Winter Faerie with Blue Crystal Eyes
Faerie with your pure crystal eyes of blue
Frosted glass majesty sure does suit you.

Queen of the North especially the wind
Seeing you means that winter can begin.

You enter calm, composed and so cool.
Forest silent when you come to rule.

Named Majesty of the Woods; etiquette requires in my presence one must bow

Veins of a Bonfire
and for our fifth anniversary, wood;
at that age love’s roots are hopeful, flexible,
damp: feeling fresh earth with fingers 
stretching and toes padding. A landscape found.

My memories are rings of bark in rotation,
aging and looping nostalgic sap solidified, held
within amber -...Read More

Premium Member Love, known and unknown
As the trees' shiver with delight
at the fresh autumn breeze,
The cycle of life has met 
his match with her.

Her cloak now adorned with all
the fallen acorns,
while gently the sun abates
for less to see.

Its sensual warmth no longer felt
by lovers in...Read More

Premium Member Autumnal lessons
Another yellow leaf came 
spinning down
Shaken, detached and 
Wind blown
To lie by other leaves
And acorns
During the season of fall!

The Oak stood bare
Bereft of all leaves
No shame, no care
Just branches and crease.
40 seasons it has seen
New leaves and acorn
Where old ones...Read More

The Squirrel
Agile, gray-brown fluff
 burying acorns in the yarded scruff,
future mighty oak spawned nests of hope
 stretched out branch trapezed along a tightrope,
chatter banter circular frolicking unfaint

acrobatic voyeur of the crowned aerial topography

Premium Member Rebirth of spring
I see leaves frozen in the ice
Like a window to the death of fall
Other leaves crunching in the grass
With a language yet to be heard
Black crows caw from the bushes
Where smooth acorns roll along
On a path with pinecones scattered
Leading the...Read More

Premium Member In the absence of complication
In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulations become distant memories.
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes -
inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind.

Words flow like rivers kissing mouths of the sea,
where an aubade of dawn creates waves of serenity.

Around bushes, trees and pathways, race two lively squirrels 
Scurrying speedily up and down playing games of tag together
Spreading its shaggy tail one would sit up tall by taking a halt
Prying off caps, happily chomps on healthy delicious acorns

Resonant like the moon, the sun’s shining — a halo through leafy oak.
The dark canopy like fig leaves, attempting to hide the naked bloke.
Ablaze on a cool November day, the warm and yellow sunbeam soak.

Comes, frenzy of cold blustery winds...Read More

Another summer had given way to lengthened shadows’ fragrant scent

Musky soil gathered a gentle morning sun just enough for safe sorrows 

In the forest of mind after relentless heat gave...Read More

Fairy Houses
The Gardens* had some houses,
Teeny tiny ones they'd made,
Hidden next to pots of flowers
Quite adorably displayed.

Twigs and acorns, fruits and berries
Formed the roofs, the doors and walls 
Of these little homes just waiting 
'Til a neighbor fairy calls.

For they're known...Read More

Scene after scene, in a continual slideshow of beauty
