Soar & Wait

after a short wait
seagull soars with prize in beak
he digs for clams like
the old man with the bucket
on the beach at sundown

Full Circle

rainbow of colors
scattered autumnĀ leaves wind swept –
lingering seagull

the crane has come home
cherry blossom in full bloom
second chance at love

sunflower stands tall
blue sky on memorable
summer day, no clouds

butterfly on bush
alone, gorging on nectar
wings color of beer
