shadows of fish
beneath reflections of leaves
bald cypress


February 19, 2018

ridge line wind
seemingly from everywhere
again I think of you


February 18, 2018

traveling alone
my attention held lightly
by a falling leaf


February 17, 2018

morning run
the deer look on, curious,

not finding danger

mid-February
wisteria vines starting
their slow reach for sun


February 13, 2018

alone again this year
her socks a defiant black
Valentine’s Day

February 11, 2018

our nightly walk home
puddles full to overflowing 
with moonlight


February 10, 2018

taking turns on watch
February sliding by
nesting bald eagles


February 09, 2018

leafless branches
I try to remember
the last time we kissed


February 08, 2018

February 07, 2018

yes I should be
sleeping but then again
the stars need seeing

February 03, 2018

slowed, then frozen
two-dimensional still life
winter puddle


February 02, 2018

her grandmother name
whatever the babies could say
was just fine


February 01, 2018

trading yawns
at the end of our day
the owl calls again
