The Gift of Softness

You're a happy

That my heart

Wants to Sing

I have found

In the softness

That you bring

The softness
that is


These photos are of my flowering crabapple tree

Until Next Time


It seems too soon to say

I could watch you

For a lifetime

And still be surprised

By your transformation

I pat you into the ground in the fall

You're no more than a hope
and a promise

I've no idea if I'll get to see you at all

Even though I have all winter to forget about you

I recognize you the minute you appear

But nothing can prepare me for
how much I need to see you

or how beautiful you are

In every colour
At any time of day

The last of my tulips are finishing

I can't believe it's time to say

The Dandy Lion

Deafening is the lion's roar
In strength and pride he stands
Terror is the way he rules
As King throughout the land

Hidden in the grassy plains
Waiting for his chance
He's storing up on energy
Planning his advance

All at once he blazes forth
And shows his yellow mane
Once he makes his presence known
They won't let him remain

The battle lines are clearly drawn
In this endless summer war
Though they spray and shriek and hack away
They can't tame the lion's roar

Hearts For Sale

Hearts for sale
They're worth the price

Feeling blue?
Don't think twice

Better reach out
Pick one quick

Without a heart
You'll be lovesick

A happy heart's
Like a summer day

It fills you up
Chases your cares away

Best choose wisely
One that's right for you

Nothing lasts longer
Than a heart that's true

Do be careful
Hearts can break

Always give more
Than you ever take

So, what's the price
For this precious heart?

Cherish it, so
That you'll never part

Hearts For Sale

Alluring Allium

I don't know if I'd have the courage

To bring out a cache of jewels
(if I happened to have one)

And slowly peel back the layers of protection
right in plain view

all my shining

So potently purple 

Each one unique and priceless

Not just one of them,
but many

Out in the open
for everyone to see
and enjoy

That's what Mother Nature does

Her spirit of generosity
is an inspiration to us all
