Welcome Home


after a hard day's work, a refuge
from the rest of the world-
tiger lilies and you


all is quiet on a woodsy path- 
but for rustling leaves
and a bird's song


a flower is born in the sky
and so am I, alive and thriving
amidst greens and blues


deeply rooted among rocks-
looking upward, the climb is hard
but how worth is the view


geraniums will grow again
in the sunshine, with a little love
a little hope and a lot of gratitude

Hi everyone! As I mentioned in my previous post, my husband and I moved to a new home in the countryside of New York. I'm sharing today some pictures from my backyard and accompanying haiku. We have a weathered wooden bench where tiger lilies have bloomed next to it. A little path leads into the woods where pink rhododendron have blossomed. There are rocks up the hill and lots of trees and everything is green and luscious now as we've had quite a bit of rain. I planted geraniums in a terracotta pot and I'm patiently waiting for them to bloom. I hope you enjoy my poetry and photos and I wish you all a Happy Fourth of July weekend! xx

  23. It seems as though this transplanting leads to a new liveliness--beautifully expressed. If you are anywhere near Hudson NY, come see my mother's art at Columbia Greene Community College!
