A Cup of Spring

mom's tea cup

Miss Spring sips her tea
as we anticipate her arrival.
She says, “Be patient, for
soon I will bring you
colors so pleasing and
new life, delightful.
But first, Mr. Winter must
finish acting out his scene.

spring came fleetingly
teasing with its friendliness
winter claims its post

be as bad.)

Bidding Farewell

Golden leaves (2)

To welcome winter’s stunning coat,
Autumn sheds its golden layers
Gorgeous hues evoke emotions
Enticing with their pleasing flavors

Last Chance

Rose 2014

It’s almost time to
let sun take its curtain call
one last chance to shine

(I’m a little premature, as the sun will shine 
for awhile longer before rain will begin,
but the garden is changing

and soon, seasons will, too.)  🙂

Winter’s Gift


I’m mesmerized by the colors
that dance across your face
as flames carry out a jazz recital
my heartbeat meets their pace

Your eyes penetrate
with a hunger that feeds
You touch me with your thoughts
fulfilling all my needs

Wrap your warmth around me
with soul, body, and mind
and touch my lips so gently
to taste the sweet, sweet wine
