Fall of Night

the fall of night
bestows upon me well earned
moments of quiet

garden awash in moonlight
fireflies waltz through tall grass

a spring fantasy
cherry blossom canopy –
in hands of nature

a lane with cherry blossom
drizzle – a good place

Clouds & Spring

#Tanka Tuesday

rain clouds all day, a
gray haze blankets springs newness
pelting rain drops plop
so we wait, the birds and I
listening to sound of spring

Wish & Magic

Photo taken at the Terminal Market in Brooklyn where all things plants and food can be found. Spring is the time of year when the romantic gardens in my head bears little resemblance to the reality in my yard. Nonetheless, I dream on and capture it all in photographs.

at the dawn of spring
magical awakenings
wishes start anew
old worries dissipate and
I’m a part of all things new

Hard & Soft


from hard frozen ground
the most delicate seedlings –
the magic of spring
brings old limbs a taste of youth
clad in soft delicate blooms

Clouds & Spring

the light of the sun
in hiding behind dark clouds
a rainy spring day

I embrace the first raindrops
thankful for hidden blessings

Tanka Tuesday

Fire & Rain

at the first rain drops
I move to the window seat
crackling fire
and rhythm on tin roof, I’m
seduced by the elements
