Bouquet of Daisies

I’ve never seen a sight as white and bright, As brilliant when the bud, though still entombed in purple deep, becomes a vibrant sight, Near blinding, once that flower’s fully bloomed. Emerging one by one, these daisies’ flumes bestir the heart and take the breathe away, Distract and turn the heads of hardened grooms, Who […]

This Earthly Plane

This earthly plane on which we mere subside, Seems other worldly, wistfully serene, A plane between where sky and sea collide, Where humankind do live and dare to dream. Is earth a conjured backdrop for our schemes? We know it’s mere a sphere amid the vast of deep, dark space; yet more than it may […]

Village Nights

My “village” wears a shawl of winter snow, Yet folks return each year to take their place, And lighting from within the homes we know, Create an air of warmth and welcoming space. ”T was only hours ago they lay in crates, Securely stored to spend the warmer climes, Anticipating joy on grandson’s face that […]

The Maze

She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, And yet she feared the secrets held within, She should have turned away, she should have flown. Aroma cedars bunched, full overgrown, Soft and nestling teased her to come in, She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, The sign was clear, the entrance etched in brown […]

Buttercups

In striving for fulfillment, seeking light, She almost overlooked the golden blonde, For brilliance oft confuses, blurring sight. Throughout her teenage years the buds so slight, Wee blossoms rose from lush and limpid ponds, She sought fulfillment, ever seeking light. Against the glistening of the leafy heights From dewy droplets clinging to her fronds, For brilliance […]

Reflections

Sunlight streaming in remained unseen, Because my eyes were blinded by the light, Then wakened senses opened to the gleam. Day after day, I wandered past the scene, Oblivious to simple gifts in sight, Sunlight streaming in remained unseen. In search of inner peace and calm serene, I ran from daily strife and urge to […]

Split Decision

Balmy afternoon spawns thoughts of Spring, (though groundhog claims a few more wintry weeks) But during full-moon sleep, the world turned white, Erasing leaves of grass and leafy trees. My puppy licked his sno-cone from the sill, Carved prints betrayed my deer-hooved migrant guests, The feeders hung near top the blanket ground, And rocker sits […]

Motion

The windmill at Peddlar’s Village stands tall and silent, against the dramatic, wispy-clouded sky of Bucks County.

Listening to Silence

Upon this clear and glassy, deep, blue water, Gliding effortless, across the spanse, Spied by only towering mountain spires, Gazing down upon my silent dance. No piercing sound, no ticking time, no meter, Save the sturdy oar-sluice thru the deep, Keeping steady, though unhurried, rhythm, Matching true my heart’s unwavering beat. And soaring silent ‘mid […]

Of Two Chairs

Of morning tea beside the trickling.  fountain, Attending to the nesting birds of spring; Of sandwiches and chips for May-time lunch, The welcomed mid-day respite that it brings; Of languid, lazed “martini eves” of summer, Playing fetch, with puppy toys a-fling; Our coupled Adirondacks now sit bare, For snowy covers drape our favorite chairs. These […]

From Both Sides Now

She sang: “I look at clouds from both sides now” I’ve pondered often on these puzzling words, Yet ringing true today, with furrowed brow, I wonder how to heal my crippled bird. She’s lived each day by loving, not by sword, Yet life has dealt a painful, piercing blow, Her days once filled with technicolor […]
