Empty Mansion

EMPTY MANSION

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

Marshlands

MARSHLANDS

in murky marshlands
gators grin, birds take their stand
hello, mud and land

Cottonwoods

COTTONWOODS

gnarly cottonwoods
branches stretch to leaves in white
monochrome delight

 

One Among None

ONE AMONG NONE

one great egret stands
among a crowd of wee birds
peering marsh water

 

Wild Iris

WILD IRIS

its graceful presence
arrives in morning twilight
life as a flower
