Big Sky

BIG SKY

watching drifting clouds
swimming in a deep blue sea
sparrows dance on high

Empty Mansion

EMPTY MANSION

storm clouds gathering
weathered facade bears witness
to a slant of light

Amelia Island

AMELIA ISLAND

morning mist hovers
clouds dusted with pastel hues
oh sweet amelia

 

Southern Gothic II

SOUTHERN GOTHIC II

whispering oak trees
shadows dance ‘neath worn porch boards
southern secrets sleep

The Snow Moon

THE SNOW MOON

the snow moon arrives
at february’s last stand
say hello to spring

 

Just A Puddle

JUST A PUDDLE

lily pads in bloom
sky and trees amongst the grass
shimmering and blue

 

Gulf Breeze

GULF BREEZE

the smell of salt air
as the wind blows through my hair
gulf breeze love affair

 

Sitting Big

SITTING BIG

a rock above trees
against a vast open sky
sits big staring back

 

The Lighthouse

THE LIGHTHOUSE

turning of the light
night sky above, sun below
the lighthouse endures

 

Batsto Lake

BATSTO LAKE

how quiet the pond
reflecting clouds and stillness
the scent of cedar

 

Mating Season

MATING SEASON

by the sea, they land
tiny feet grabbing shore sand
mating season clan

 

Little Finch

LITTLE FINCH

little finch watches
all day from the birdhouse roof
parking lot people

 

Winter Trees

WINTER TREES

looking up to view
towering trees with large heads
swaying against blue

 

Sailing

SAILING

like a sailing ship
on a vast and changing sea
so too is my life
