excerpts from a forthcoming collection
Full Worm Moon
crawling through the night
as the robin returns
soon you will fade
bringing spring skies
and sunny days
when the robin hunts
in grass shoots
for your earthly sisters
and sings to angelic clouds
floating in a blue-grey sky.

Full Snow Moon
Full Snow Moon’s last blast of chills
foreshadow springtime’s winsome thrills.
Hungry faces hide away.
Snow Moon glows on southern bay.
Tiny buds begin to toil—
muscle through liquescent soil.
Snowy Moon winks at winsome spring
and blasts chilly kisses—farewell to winter’s fling.
