Green Wings

Dark grey butterflies
Fluttering through my window
Are shadows of leaves

Winter Storm

Dark like full moon nights
Gleaming in shimmering white
Shaking in the cold

City Street

Silence is shattered
When screaming city awakes
From dreams of hushed peace


Trees reach over road
Leaning toward their beloved
Leaves growing closer

The End of a Drought

Showers of rain fall
Tracing shadows in the sand
Like trees in winter
