Tiring the heart--
mountains and ocean
too much beauty

..the welcome

calm befriended,
a symphony of petals
fans our capes
and our bemused smiles
welcome this garden sublime

a shilfie  -
sae colourfou
a expeck it tae threip




a chaffinch  -
so colourful
I expect it to speak

..cheer, cheer

spur on,
the lavender's thrusting call
mere no contender
in the parochial garden—
but cheer, cheer, this forthrightness

Flying through the fence
Robin chases his lover
(Who just won't be caught)

..sombre shoot

sombre shoot,
speak of it to me—
each time
the earth surrenders
teach me beloved

White petals drops
to a patchwork
of mixed emotions

Hvide kronblade falder
til et kludetæppe
af blandede følelser
Errant maple leaf
Pokes its head out of the bush:
"I'm a tree!" it shouts.

..days after

well into spring,
frightfully I worry
ballpoint, I plea,
let us once more honor
our season of breath

spring dawn 
birds revved up
like cars at a light

Reflection
Blinded by the ice on the pond
I hoped on spring

hyacinths



hyacinths
in a pot on the windowsill
waiting for the spring

Saturday mornıng…



Saturday mornıng…
the daffodils drooping
with snow

..slippers

soon,
we'll be slippering it
to the store
for now, I'll praise
these heavy boots and smile

All though
in the mist of Winter
Mother Earth
show hers impatience
allowing
Snowdrops and Winter Aconite
to show her trust in Spring

golden cut –
the Fibonacci spiral
in a snail shell

Asters like to group
In funny little clusters
Of gossiping blooms.

Forsythia

thought a lesser bloom
holding no glory of spring
but He, knows whats best

Drop of rain water
Suspended in a spider's web
Trembles so slightly.
tiny flowers
on the raspberry canes
