It’s A Breeze

Ripples speed

With the breeze

Whipping small waves

With ease

On the surface

Of these

Waters guarded

By trees.

On The Stair Way

Take your time

As you climb.

Hold the rail.

Breathe in. Exhale.

On the stair way

Of life

Steps of joy

Steps of strife.

Both the rise

And descent

Are energies

Quite well spent,

As long as your heart

Can extend

To see a tad

‘Round the bend.

As the cool nights

Begin,

Snow draws near

And she pulls in.

The verdant hues of

Summer’s green,

Slowly replaced with

Sleep’s bronze

Sheen.

Atop a daisy’s crown

Of petaled

White

A bee hovers

Set to hold

The pollen sought

Like precious

Gold.

Pink Remembering

Spring recalls

How bushes previously bared

By frost and freeze,

Found a new lease

To bubble forth

A pink exuberance.

It is a good remembering

As fall emerges

To reclaim

The bushes’ leaves

Ahead of winter’s

Naked sleep.

Autumn’s Call

Trees will soon

Heed the call

To dress leaves

To enthrall

In the glorious

Ball

Foretelling cold

Yet to

Fall.

Pink For A Queen

There was a small patch

Of pink

In the large sea

Of green.

Flowers with

Heads together

Like bouquets

Fit for a queen.

Questions of Color

What will be

Of the day,

He so wanted

To say,

If you suddenly

Drain

All the color away?

Will the birds’ calls

Remain?

Will leaves still

With wind sway?

Will it be

As before

Or fade wholly

To gray?

Park Pretty

“Pink tree!” she delighted

Toddled quickly, pulled my hand

“Park pretty!” she exclaimed

“Come fast! Come fast!”

“Take picture?” she requested

And of course, I obliged.
