Skylight from Couch
White clouds against blue sky
Squirrel on roof peeking down.
Chuck-will’s-widow, whippoorwill, cheering the night.
Bright yellow cosmos growing everywhere, add purples and whites.
Four sandhill cranes come to dance for us on Thanksgiving Day
In the darkest night, I sing His song to reveal His light.
Small Golden Cloud
Flitters of tiny dragonflies glinting like gilt flakes in the sunlight.
Full of mood knobbly, and bulbous
Chatters, swishing tail at me.
Yard with weeds, always yelling what it needs.
Tentacles with suction cups reaching out from dark cave.
Bumble bee sleeping. Get busy bee.
Brown bugs live, work, and sleep in cactus bud.
Clatters on porch roof like a tambourine.
Drop diamonds reflect shimmering flowers
Backpedals in air, hovers, and then settles still, facing silence.
Waves shish shells to shore then take them back to sea.
Two by Two
Two green plants, two sparrows, two ants.
Sunday Morning Sprinkler
Sprit, sprit, singing while diamonds sparkle on leaves.
Cat lies on my chest, purring.
