first step
onto conductors platform
(for my daughter, Pamela)

in my yard
sunlight and shadows
faeries dance with joy

spring morning
sunlight on crystals
rainbows dance

oranges yellows
blues pinks purples greens
rainbow flowers in my yard

dogs racing out the door
chasing down the hill
squirrel long gone

hot water cold wind
flock of four overhead

swirling winds
‘round my shower
hot pu erh tea

white clouds
floating on the sky
spider webs

wondering if
owl earrings bring
