The Old Pine

Standing stoically
Old pine with snow snapped limbs
Another winter.

December Gray

On these cold gray days
The river's dark depths offer
The most distant views.

Marsh Blue

Stone still in marsh mud
Fishing the ebb tide nearby
A great blue heron.

Asheville Mountain Blues

Through fall foliage
Soon dispersed by gusts of wind
Asheville mountain blues.

Fall River Rambling

Fall river rambling
Just following the current
Going with the flow.

In Annapolis
Cars waiting at the draw bridge
For a boat to pass.

The Meadow

Til the sun rose high
At the edge of the meadow
Wrestled with the light.

Autumn River

All alone in the
Middle of this river with
Autumn in the air.

Into Twilight

With the setting sun
Vanishing day replaced
By sounds of twilight.

River Water

Fleeting morning mist
Fast and slow river currents
Flowing to the falls.

River Music

Down by the river
The choir sang throughout the day
Summer cicadas.

A Parking Lot

Some parking lot lines
2 garden beds and light pole
Just nothin to paint.

Movin On

Fifty years a home
With rooms full of memories
Shirley's movin on.

The Point at Compo

Resting on these rocks
A lifetime of memories
And all of them good.

Cockenoe Island

Just after sunrise
A lone black boat motors past
Cockenoe Island.

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens

Amidst poverty
DC's Aquatic Gardens
A hidden treasure.

Tonahutu Wild Flowers

High above Grand Lake
On windy rock mountain peaks
The wild flowers dance.

Great Falls

Soft steady spring rains
Flow to the falls raging white
Against the black rock.

Gazing through street signs
Do not enter, no left turn
Georgetown street corner.
