WITH THE FLOW
(a shadorma)

One season
flows into the next.
Hot Summer
days replaced
with cool nights, surrounding us
with colors of Fall.

UNDER COVER

When I sink
to new lows
I see
nature’s beauty

from a
new
perspective.

CHIHULY Q’S
(a shadorma)

Curly twists
of red and yellow,
intertwined
with orange,
match the smiles on the faces
of those looking on.

THE GIRLS

Summer,
a time
when families gather.

Sun
may set,
memories never fade.

I’ll
see you
again next year.

FALLEN FROM FAVOR
(a shadorma)

I was once
a pillar of strength.
Slowly, with
each passing
blow, my foundation weakened,
reduced to rubble.
