parades her fleeting beauty

biscuit comfort

May 30th, 2015

on the edge of sleep
and in happy anticipation,
I whisper to myself.....

'tomorrow I will make buttermilk biscuits'!

A Small Stone from the Similkameen

Gypsy Peonies

ragged and disheveled
too long dancing
in the small hours
of the garden.....
shaking the tambourine

still wild and lovely!

(Queen Victoria's Birthday)

The flames of

the yellow iris

and the bright poppy

set the altar afire

this Pentecost.....

company at lunch....

family gossip,
linger to brighten the rest of the day.

Small stones from the Similkameen

May 21st, 2015

A yellow butterfly
flirts shamelessly
with the marmalade iris
