my friends & I at the Rocky Mountains

Afloat (Technique of Comparison)

A friend always there
Bright yellow inflated raft
Keeping me afloat

Zoom In (Technique of Narrowing Focus)

The plush green forest
Maple tree stands proud and tall
Nest of the blue bird

a photo I took in my yard this fall

Change (Technique of Simile)

Thoughts change direction
Leaves fade and float to the ground
Accepting changes

Rooted (Technique of Association)
Roots planted firmly
Stalk and leaves begin to dance
Swaying in the breeze
