As the boats sail by,

each of us is an island.

Will they come ashore?

A man who has friends must show himself friendly, and there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24 (MEV)

Just how much longer

will the changing leaves stay green?

End. Begin again.

slowly dissolving the rocks

the steadfast lighthouse

change Haiku


Sturdy wild flowers.

Do you ever contemplate

how soon comes the fall?

thick smoke on the hill

means the wildfires rage unseen

and so too in life

All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.

Isaiah 40:6,8

tubes of tempera

God gives each of us colors

paint earth with flowers!

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

Oh, over-trimmed tree!

Are you going to hug me?

Nearly leafless love.


Delicate Dance

fluttering between phloxes

a delicate dance

Haiku possibility


The lane to the lake

leads to possibility.

The sky’s the limit!
