Bees buzz busily

with yellow and black jackets;

work in uniforms.


Long-sleeved willow tree

drops her arms into the lake

in June to cool off.


Lady Moon rises

high among the brittle stars

to bathe them in light.


Rain dances today

on rooftops and windowpanes

tap-tapping her song.


Capture a moment

to find in your treasure chest:

rainy-day comfort.


 Ocean waves scamper

up the sandy shore – greet me

with salty kisses.
