Winter Set Afire

Valentine's Heart Afire

Cupid’s heart burns like a valentine afire.

Fire dragons

Dragons breathe in the frigid air, and exhale colors warmer than they look.

Purple Majesty

Pinks and purples wait their turn, like patient lovers long for day’s end.

Great Plains sunset

Life’s purple majesty lies in the hearts of we who have eyes to see.

Stay warm, folks!


Great Plains Skies

Great Plains' Geese

After the sun sets, geese fly above the cover of pink.

Lincoln Airport sunset

Leaders and followers both occupy the same time frame.

Families become communities, once the day comes to a close.

Canadian Geese

Fly me straight, and fly me high!Goose illusion

After all, illusions are only numbers cut down to size.

One Ray Street

One Ray To Heaven

Some folks say there is only one ray to heaven,

One Ray Street

as if, they’ve taken that trip before.

One Ray Street

Is this One Ray Street the famed road well traveled?

One ray sunset

Or, is this your ray and to hell with what they say?

Sun Ray Street

When your sun begins to set, and your ray of hope wanes dimmer,

Last ray to go

only the gleam in your eye will know

who went down a winner.
