Summer High

Outside my window:

hummingbirds and butterflies –

beauty on the fly.


Summer Treasure

Bees and butterflies

dart among tall sunflowers –

summer’s golden gift


Warm Welcome

In the summer heat

black-eyed susans greet the rain

with shining smiles.


Bachelor Party





Those bachelor buttons

aren’t buttoned up as they sway

in the summer sun.



A stillness set in

after the rain – a quiet

time to soak things in.
