Moonflowers – a short poem. All the photographs used to illustrate my poems are my own. The photos were not my inspiration, but I chose them from pictures I’ve taken over the years because they illustate the image or sentiment expressed.

Moonflowers Pale and purple hearts twine together under the moon like faint hopes firmly rooted. Tentative tendrils of shy passion weave a vital tune. The quiet deep song seeps slowly from their hearts and kisses the ghostly bloom.

Stargazer. We all have flashes of clarity; this poem represents one of those moments.

Stargazer She’s the stargazer— wonder-eyed flower child. Discord doesn’t faze her. In it she sees the contrast of our potential harmony. Starlike, her laser glance penetrates deceit, and from defeat she gathers starflowers of awareness to scatter at our feet.
