with a long flat brush
can become
ribbons of steel.

Three Black Snakes

You never know
what you'll find
in an abstract painting.
Is that a flaming slice of pizza
on the left?

Somewhere on Earth

grass sprouts, flowers bloom,
and trees burst into leaf.

Colors of Spring

Out of the gray damp of March
and into April. . .
the month of flowering forsythia,
daffodils, tulips, 
cherry, plum, and pear blossoms.

The Book of Hope

I recommend listening to
Jane Goodall and Douglas Abrams.

The subtitle describes it well,
"A Survival Guide for Trying Times".

Crocus Magic

Not a literal rendering,
just the colors and energy
of the crocus flowers
that will soon be popping up
in our gardens and lawns.

Lotus Heart

"There's a drive to live
at the heart of things,
gotta drive a pipe into that spring.
Let it water everything
to keep the world we know."

Lyrics from
"To Keep the World We Know" 

Beware the Ides

winter weary mid-month
in an endlessly
chill damp spring.
