winter sun
the penthouse garden
tucked in salt straw

image and verse--lmp

a dwarf rabbit disappears
in a tap of magic...

image and verse--kk

spinning the globe
my finger lands
on Antarctica

image and verse--lmp

in the breezeway,
a gust of spring blossoms

image and verse--kk

twittering of birds
as newcomers raise their heads
the sky a deeper blue

image--lmp/verse--kk

all seven sisters
gossiping till dawn

image--kk/verse--lmp

Orpheus & Eurydice
a plan to soften
the hearts of Hades

image--lmp/verse--kk

window shopping
the car of his dreams

image--kk/verse--lmp

thunder storm
a flash of sprites caught
in the camera lens

image--lmp/verse--kk

whale watchers
crowd the gunwale

image--kk/verse--lmp

kids off to school
a cup of warm coffee
and the day moon

image & verse--lmp

a church on every corner
the sound of bell crickets

image & verse--kk
