Night Meal
Dark

dews saliva’s soft,
peppering down upon
freshly planted garden seeds;
tiny hair like roots digging deep,
searching for nutrients in the soil;
finding food and drink, the party begins.

All the Roses Have Their Thorns, but That's Not Why They're Adored
Smell the roses, 
Smell their air
Wonder what sweet sounds they'd share
Sounds of summer, sounds of fall,
Sounds so sweet, you'd pick them off

Tasteful colors,
Tasteless thorns
A taste of iron in the blood they pour
A taste of medicine, for ours they fall
For their...Read More

Nature's Green Dress
Nature's green dress sprawls lofty upon the earth,
bursting forth with life abiding foliage,
photosynthesizing perpetual birth
that carries a carpet of created knowledge.

with moss detail, but not to upstage
frisky ferns fringes, flower buttons with...Read More

Morning Dew
Sun rays fills me with warmth
Reflections of the sun reflects my thoughts..
Life twisted with turns..
Curves and winding roads..
Avenues of fear..
Lost in a stream of confusion..

Reaching for the stop sign..
Dived into a dead end..

Early morning dew appears..

Less I long for the day you grow and you bloom
How I wish for your petals to not fall but rise
But you are no fool for my pretty little lies.

Day Lilies

Like you and I, daylilies greet 
the morning refreshed, grateful
for the daily bread of light.

Yet hardly do we turn another page
of our lives and the common cry goes up:
Life is short, our cup too little filled.

Learn from the daylily that...Read More

In verity and with great hopes,
Malachy told his Prophecy of Popes!

Like the bees to their honeycomb.

Of all remaining popes in their hour!

Human
I am human
I am not the beginning
Nor the end of it.
Evolution did not begin with me
nor am I so arrogant
As to presume that I, Human as I am,
Will represent the final flowering,
The culmination of creation.

I am human.

All ablaze those summer days,
And such sweet scented flowers!
Glorious gardens and sweet bouquets,
Summer madness in fragrant bowers!

Harvest the grapes and pour red wine;
Whispers of soft, sweet memories...
Burnished autumn days are so fine;
Wild winds scatter love's debris.

Before the sunrise, there was...Read More

Gold
What is gold?
It is light-play on a warm summer’s day,
the sun filtering down upon Gaia’s face,
warming her children with it’s embrace.

Gold is tangerine clouds reflecting the sun’s face
while flowers refract it back into space.
Gold is warm like puppies, too

When clouds above dance to our song,

Pale Shelter


Walking together entwined on garden path
you whispered the tune of autumn breeze.
Your enigmatic smile, the mirage of illusion,
I thought sparkled in my stellar yearning.

See the flower of life
