Sugar & Spice

butterfly’s flutter
whispers of sugar and spice –
buzz of bumble bee

honeysuckle’s heady scent
beckons both naughty and nice

Mirror & Harbor

a mirror image
the pair of swans off the pier –
a gliding tango
never far from each other
together a safe harbor

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

Love


on this life journey
we have navigated all
we laughed and we cried –
autumn of our lives now filled
with warm loving reflections

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
