Spring

Creeping

Climbing
Finding its way into the greenness
Of spring
Oh how I long for the creeping of spring

dirt filled pots
bloom brightly
in the season of eternal day


Stretch

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

The same owl, stretching
She stretched both wings
before moving back into the hallow of the oak

Amazing to think that when this large
winged creature is in flight she will
emit no sound, just a swoop right before you see her


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


Sticking it Out

Spring Lake Park, 3Rivers District | MN 2012

Last season sticking in out, trying to hold tough onto the green blades of spring.


This Bud’s for You

Sliver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

The trees are blooming
Senses are filled
Warm fragrance drifts along
With a fresh spring breeze
Welcome Spring!


Rock Hunter 2012

Lake Superior | Lutsen, MN 2012

My grandmother taught me how to hunt rocks
she showed me how to study and
delicately view each stone
to examine the qualities
texture, color, shape
when I feel the weight of a stone in my hand
there is a vibration, a connection
as if I am holding the hand of my grandmother

Weathered 2012

Old Shed | Lutsen, MN 2012

She sits atop the hill
Looking out onto the big lake
Her flanks seasoned with the weather

Still Waters 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 River District | MN 2012

Still reflection
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
