Summer Solstice

on this, the longest day

she flits from flower to flower –

with the butterfly bush,

she takes her time

Change – A Tanka

on the face of it

change sneaks around the corner

taking hold like vines

surging for the summer sun –

securing it’s space in time

Love that name. We met in the park yesterday while I was on my mask-wearing-social-distancing walk.

Meadow

a moth’s aflutter
zig zags, a cantankerous
mocking bird in tow
as they head to the meadow
gap closes, this will not end well

A Sliver of Light

unlikely voices sharing
balls up off the floor, somewhat
are we on the verge
of getting the emperor clothed!
a sliver of light

A Rainbow

wp-1591811684668.jpgthis cloud lurking overhead
has claimed me
it snuggles in
displacing the thread of hope
I’ve been holding fast to
it flits in the breeze of the blues
swishing through my fingers
at every grasp

I force myself into the garden
it looks thirsty
I turn on the garden hose
and there through the fine sprays
a rainbow
