Beautiful Dawn, Lately
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Cool waves and green foam
Zest in crisp morning breezes
Pink clouds float along
Sunrise splash into gold sun
Chill thrills before day's begun.

Yellow-orange zing
A stroll in warmth since the dip
Blooms on green catwalks
Stained skies are fading to blue

Salmon Tulips Shining
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Sunshine was pouring
in the wake of black shadows
Tulips clashed with noon
shining, shining, like full moon
Pink orange hues, like sunset

Midday quite breathless
when wandering wind has gone
from fragrance and fire
It'll return later, too late

The Moon Visitation
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Backdoor wide open
A cream moon is coming in
Softly, like a dream.
Beyond red sun, pearly rays
in a lazy, lilac night.

Howling wind whimsy
'midst the fantasy flowers
in plum, pink and green.
Silver moon, always welcome

Tango of Darkness
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Fragrance night, spicy
Breeze tangoes near tomorrow
to green world stage raves
Howling blues stir lilac dark
Starlight, whistling in the park

Clouds keep on drifting
in times of vanishing moon
It's nature's wild dance
a sultry summer tango

Red Flowers From My Love
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Summertime lover
I'm waiting at the station;
Strawberry evening!
Anticipation heartbeat,
like rainbow glimpsed from a street.

Dusky moments fly
like dense willows in wild wind,
in the moss green spring.
Then a train roars like thunder
