tiny topaz words shimmering copper upon an amethyst sea


what price?

holding the moment

against the bones of my heart

what price, Love so deep?


spotless white

blossoms spotless white

spring brides arrayed in glory

resurrection’s dawn


acorns hit the spot

until humans gave them chips

now fast-food junkies


white blossoms shining

lifting soft faces upward

scrubbed clean in sunlight

sunny daffodil

seed buried in dark

bursts winter’s frosty shackles

sunny daffodil

fading fragment

God’s very shadow

shimmers within a raindrop

mere fading fragment


God’s glory is veiled

in earthly shadow by mercy

lest we become blind


the tree planter did

not see winter’s barrenness

he saw fruit and shade

life’s sweet sunset

to be found in a

gold field with silver sickle

at life’s sweet sunset


something about him

says home sweet home even far

far away from home
