On snow covered path,
a lonely soul seeks shelter,
finding only strangers.

*

Spring’s awakening,
bringing winter’s final days.
Life begins anew.

*

Foreboding forest,
days cold and dark as midnight.
What secrets within?

*

Where goes your white coat?
“I wear brown now” says rabbit
“It comes again next fall.”

*

Pine forest so dark.     
Calls echo in the shadows,
draped in mystery.

*

Waterlilies float,
across mirrored waves of glass
like clouds in heaven.

*

The town’s eery glow,
in the foggy dead of night,
one lonely lantern.

*

Adventurous fawn,
mother’s anxious eyes do search.
their destinies tied.

*

Iphigenia,
cursed blade, a father’s regret.       
Calm seas, hubris wrought.   

*

The forest erupts
with whispered sounds of midnight,
in filtered starlight.

*

A rabbit’s eyes blink,
In silent acknowledgment,
seeing you are near.

*

Millipede retreats
to seeks a forest refuge,
avoiding the fight.

*

Cold wet winter day.
A recent rain drenched pathway,
leads me back to home.

*

Beyond ancient stars,
mute witness to man’s folly,
history’s flicker.

*
