thought by thought

this after-sunset sky...



Acorn #29, 2012


hint of cool . . .

the green-corbelled oaks

heavy with crows


Acorn #28, 2012



the egret preens deeper

into its breast


Acorn #28, 2012



you're not telling me . . .

camellia buds


Acorn #28, 2012



the buzzard's eye

fills with sky


Acorn #27, 2011


butterfly dust . . .

the question I never

dared to ask


Acorn #27, 2011


from the throat

of a blackbird

morning star


Acorn #26, 2011


goldfinch breeze...

the sense of losing

what I never had


Blithe Spirit, June 2011


blackbird song . . .

the universe



The Heron's Nest, March 2011


rising sun . . .

the fawn's bed of meadowsweet

unfolds from the dew


The Heron’s Nest, December 2012


winter sun...

the soft flicker of waxwings

in the firethorn


The Heron’s Nest, March 2012


just-fledged light

chips of wren song

from the log pile


Presence #45, 2011


white peony

the milliner orders

more silk


A Hundred Gourds, June 2013


mayfly in amber

the ink of my death poem

still wet


Frogpond 36:2, 2013


spring mist

steaming in its caul

the newborn lamb
