in winter’s midst
standing on the empty pier
a snowdrop

long winter day
passes in a flash of light

close to the water’s edge

Quickly falls the night–
Silk-tree blossoms

one tulip

Wisteria flowers look fragile –

The Vacation – July 8, 2014

The Vacation – Shadorma

A day trip
to Malcesine
first it rained
then it poured
we ran for cover laughing
hoping it would stop.

The lady
watched as we ran
just tourists
having fun
we entered her shop laughing
the pizza was good!
