Sunset

Blood red sky,

Thunder crashes overhead,

When will it rain?

Teapot

A cup of  great tea
needs water boiling just so.
No whistling, no tea.

I put on the teapot for a cup of tea, it never whistled – so my new teapot has boiled dry and melted the lid.  A nice way to end the day.

Barking Dog

The barking dog runs
out to chase the fireflies
and finds a rabbit.

Green Walls

Green walls line the road

Protecting us from the view.

So, where are the Ents?

Spring Rains and Flowers

The lead color sky

beckons with teasing colors

of blooms by the trail.

Cottonwoods

Majestic cottonwoods
Stand by the stream whispering
Tales of long ago dreams.

Dragons

Crouching – small dragon

Protects and blesses all here

Among the tulips.
