Another Morning in Paradise

My view changes
from dark silhouettes
against grey background
to back-lit 3-D forest
sun highlighting golden points
on mossy trunks.
Another morning in paradise.

Beautiful People


Beautiful people
wearing the right look,
the right label;
what are you thinking,
who do you love,
besides yourself

If I could read
inside your head,
your heart,
hear the things you say
about each other,
about me,
would I still see you
beautiful.

Atmospheric Perspective

cirriform wisps
floating through
rayleigh scattering,
barely visible
but to each other,
on our way
to seventh heaven.

Monday, Monday

Clean clothes day.
There’s no scent like it,
clothes dried out in the sun and wind.
Not a chemical or spray can duplicate that.

Building The Dream House

Building the dream.

There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, ‘Yes, I’ve got dreams, of course I’ve got dreams.’ Then they put the box away and bring it out once in awhile to look in it, and yep, they’re still there.

Crumbs of the World

“You can’t suck all of the crumbs of the world from your heart.”

(Someone whispered this into my ear in my dream.  I don’t have any idea what it means but it seemed important.)

Happiness Is Home

Happiness is a home of your own
whether it’s large or small,
living, laughing, sharing with
the ones you love best of all.

Pink Poppies

These pink poppies popped up in the herb garden. I guess I must have planted them but they were a nice surprise.  Lovely soft pink atop a fragile looking stem.

Just Hanging Around

Hanging out in the arbour, staring at the walnut tree
thankful for beauty and quiet places.
