broken by the glided movement
of two paired green heads

Sunset Gathered 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District |MN 2012

Spiny tree limbs reach
gathered is the warmth of the failing sun
the buds soak in the last of the day
prepared to erupt into another season

Hiker 2010

What is it the Hiker seeks
remains of another lifetime
a window into the past
or into the future
framing the life now lived

Birth of a Fern 2010

Banning State Park | Sandstone, MN 2010

The birth of a newly formed fern
can be heard as it
rolls from its downy cocoon
tossing up its arms wide
to break free

White Flower Bud 2010

Banning State Park| Sandstone, MN 2010

Life bursts all at once
last of the frost has melted away
while the river moves with fierce intent
there is a symphony of sights, sounds and smells

Green Leaf 2010

Green Leaf 2010

Banning State Park | Sandstone, MN 2010

Spring brings a sense of renewal
the smell of the earth
a core of a leaf just as it starts to unfurl
the rush of a misted breeze

Yellow flower 2011

Yellow flower 2011

Banning State Park | Sandstone, MN 2011

The river bottom is lush
even in an early spring hike
Blooms appear brighter
greens appear calmer

Hinge 2012

Hinge 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

As I moved along the path
the tall prairie grass reached out toward me
like a lover looking for its last hug
before the hinge is let loose

Shift 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

The season has twisted
there is a definite shift
right of center
then soon
back again
