Announcing; Winter in Colorado


Thick frosted branches

Coated with fresh fallen snow:

Winter is now here.

MIDNIGHT QUEEN (Part 2)


Midnight Queen


It was the eve of Halloween

when all but the moon

went dark and unseen,

except for the glow

of lanterns lit

along the street

on Madison Row.

When down the walk

came Midnight Queen

looking for food,

or mice to stalk.

A pumpkin like torch,

with a smiling face 

sat perched on a porch

when a door opened wide, 

and a quaint, old woman

welcomed her inside.

Dressed all in black,

she had light-colored eyes

 that glowed and twinkled  

like the stars in the skies.

Could this be fate, 

for Midnight Queen to

a find a home on

Halloween?

A seed planted…

A seed planted, hides

In soil watered till blossomed

Kissed by the sun, grows

Where are the nuts?


Hey! Where are the nuts?

This is not acceptable!

And birds eat this stuff?

Spring Roses


Garden fresh bright red

Roses fill my crystal vase

Bringing spring indoors

Show me…

Show me that you care

To be the friend I can trust

With no strings attached.

Sunny Days


I can hardly wait

For bright sunny days to come

To plant my spring blooms
