Une Channe

Elegance and grace
abundance overflowing
Swiss pewter Pitcher.

Imagine magic
Fields, one hand filled with peonies
Vineyards and dry sun

And yes, from Vermeer
to Rembrandt water flows. In
clay Cezanne’s wine

is kept. I grasp at
last the openings I have
been missing. It is

interconnected
we strive together to reach
creativity.

March yields a moment
just at twilight, when spring is
announced in the dim.

It is a time when
hope holds hands, hearts unfold, and
piles of ice glow wild.

Tiny house: in fall
the selection is ruthless
I kept the Jade plant

Braided money tree
made the cut, geraniums
not so lucky joined

the compost bin I
tend with devotion into
Spring. Aloe Vera,

Avocado tree,
Both froze after many a
Ice Season. Soon time

for Greenhouse visits.
Return to Dandelion
Acres start fresh.

Soon! This Houseplant
Will join deck pots, gleefully
Bask in fresh sunlight.

Mind unravels wise
pearls. Quietly as conch shells
spiral, madness grows.

Night sinks soul. At dawn
the Apex out of control.
Giant waves over
each grain roll, as brain
on overdrive struggles to
center, see, and be.

In comes Poetry
as Remedy. Precision
tool counts. Calming Sea.

Unfazed her petals
lean stretching their green steams, to
the dark midnight sun.

Dazzling

In the spot light she
pirouettes to dazzling heights
while we sit zazen

Still Lives so brilliant
In silence gently quiver
Piero by their side.

Sheathed her knives do cut
Right to the core revealing
Nature’s mysteries.


Doorway

Light shines through the glass
Curtain sways to summer breeze
Flowers grace her deck

If one had to guess
who will come through next, to sit,
for tea, for neighbors

near and far have not
crossed paths, pandemic you see
closed garden gateways.

I’d say it would be
thee, crossing the stone arc at
the edge of my woods,

Rising to see from
hammock chair I would, whole heart,
Delighted, greet thee.

Yesterday’s prompt howls
Branches crack, nests hang balanced
I can hear the moon

Darkness has a loud
Voice. The plough person we love
Prepared us, for worse.

With gale force strength, ice
Whips into boiler plate, no
room, errors fatal

Winds excite this night
interminable the wait
Yet Spring will come, in

Time. Winter rises
Sugar’s sweetest gift: Maple
Snow, and Vermont’s hearts.

Water, sand and snow
Sahara to the Arctic
Twirl around my heart

Up down and sideways
From leaf to peak, shinning sea
Lift waves up to thee

In elegant glee
Clouds roll through a thunderstorm
Rejoice free to be.

Delicate

An ocean of moon light
Fills her silver hair

Wind picks up
Colorful prayer flags

A candle flickers
In her night

Pine branches sway
Fragrant and free

A mid a sea of winter green
A bell tolls in the distance

Her heart set
On healing she looks up

At all the stars of midnight

Golden Sands

Golden sands travelled
Yesterday
Rose in the winds
They blew two
Thousand miles
Three
Thousand kilometers
From the Sahara desert to Switzerland
Floating so many on the wind
They turned the skies
Gold
A shade of yellow
Like a summer storm
Before the lightening
Rose
Saved in a little jar
Reminiscing, love
Of a trip
A token returned
Still here
Forty years
Her teenage years
When the snow turned gold
Yesterday
