a delicate breeze
trees at the river side lean
the blue butterfly

perched on a rock
the song of a grackle
swift in passing


a beach umbrella
the perfect reading tent
splash of waves

yearning for salt
tiny shells in the sand
opened chip chip


an uncut flower
who know the name
of this wayside one

plucking petals
daisy tales of true love
or not true love


ornate envelope
post marked 2014
a new year card

heart shaped chocolates
such a hopeless romantic
his doting wife
