Melancholy Memories

Watching the rain fall

Remembering days of old

Reflections in rain

Reminders of times past

All runoff like raindrops

A Winter’s Delight

Ornamental Cabbage and Kale In Winter coved by raindrops

Cabbages and Kale

Wear Ruffles and Pearls

In the land of kings

They dance til dawn

While sparrows watch

And nightingale sings

Their splendor soon fades

As warm breezes kiss

And sunshine brings

The end of Winter’s ball

And thus herald in

Sights which are Spring’s
