traveler’s journey
to witness a scene so chaste
stars blush at the sight

shepherds pause from watching flock
glory to the new born king

Christmas angel
standing high atop the tree
presents down below

piano practice
metronome tocks along

starched lace doily
under grandma’s bowl
lavender in the drawer

teapot whistle
silent on the shelf
grandma isn’t home

Prairie Sigh

meadowlark

meadowlarks hello
repeated from now to then
-born in prairie sigh

captured dream of summer fun
rolling grassland setting sun
