window by my desk
frames the view near and far
light, trees, birds, sky
weather and seasons

three windows
in my small study
how the light falls
on wood, art, walls

Petals On Wood

The daylilies in the vase
Are ending

       Petals drop on wood

I leave them
They express something poignant

       That words never could.

“Petals On Wood” was published in ARTS ALIVE:  A LITERARY REVIEW (1988, The Tinley Park – Park District; Illinois).

Old Wood In The House

strong winter winds
old wood in the house
ceilings, floors, walls
startling me in the early hours
speaking to me this day

resilience
strength

the way
Hope holds

PETALS ON WOOD

The day lilies in the vase
Are ending

Petals drop on wood

I leave them
They express something poignant

That words never could.
