Gentle Wishes

As a child ~ could you pass by
Without noticing the perfect symmetry
Of the soft seeds
Waiting to be wished onto the breeze

dirt filled pots
bloom brightly
in the season of eternal day

I never tasted a flower so sweet when spread on toast as a jam.


Hidden

Hidden inside the bleak torrent of the thunder storm
Folded in a tight bud
Summer waits
For the expected


Rachel’s Eye

Several Locations | MN 2010

Rachel is the model for the “eye”
This was the lead photo in a series for an exhibit in 2010
“Susan’s Eye”
It has been my fortune in life to have traveled a few places across the United States
In the travels I have always noticed Susan Eyes’
These flowers can grow anywhere
This started me thinking, “what would a Susan’s Eye see?”
The spider is real, in fact I have numerous photos of flowers
That have spiders nestled inside or under the petals peeking out
Spiders, that is another story, as I am drawn to spiders
Or are they drawn to me?
One of a few of my totems


Scents

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

As I walk around the park, with my furry companion
We pass the trees that have new blooms
I wish I knew the name of the trees
The blooms are so fragrant
I am drawn to the nearest branch
where Spring fills the senses
