Poppy Maidens


 

The poppy maidens
dance through the grasses, flouncing
their yellow-gold skirts.

Rain Puddle


 

For love of water,
I seek puddles after rain—
hopeless addiction!

Clouds


 

In my innocence,
I thought the clouds were cotton,
bordering earth’s hem.

Lonely Sentinel


 

Lonely sentinel,
guarding grass and tree and stone,
creatures far and nigh.

Wall of weathered stone,
drawing nigh and heeding you,
I am not alone.

Numinous


 

Pay attention, child,
to common things—lazy clouds,
lush pastures, small streams.

 
Draw nigh them, my child,
learning all you need to know
of wisdom and grace—

 
The ordinary
scintillates as numinous
in this holy place.

Chocolate Lily


 

Nigh the lily’s heart
place the sacred offerings—
earth and stone and fire.

Ancient barnyard wall,
lichens clinging fast each stone—
holy ones, draw nigh.
