Rosy Day Running
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Exhilaration!
Feet pounding windswept pavements
people thrilled to run.
Red butterflies in tandem-
Invigorated heartbeats.

Day to satin night
on every viable route
energetic youth!
Pretty, fleeting scenery

Solitary and Green
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Birds and trees beckoned
and like a rocket to the
stars, I was alone.
A triumph of fern green woods
in the glamour of stillness.


Lost in the vastness
yet God sees my every move.
Songs of the sunshine

Determined Memories
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Hot days at the beach
sunshine on lavender skies
Frolics of childhood
Moments captured in golden
with colors, laughter and song

Soon thoughts come calling
with sand castle memories
in a dance with time
Peachy sun on gleaming sand

Cinderella Smile
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Smile Cinderella
The high prince is coming soon
when stars dance with moon
There's yet magic to be found
so cast off those lonesome blues

Destined for dancing
in your dazzling glass slippers
Hearts were made for love
at the hour they feel magic

The Wild Ones
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

on redolence lane
tangled and wild roses teem
I'm going places
yellow birds fly through jade trees
cream and purple butterflies

joy down sunshine way
and hues are following me
waltzing in beauty
this portrait of summertime

Saturday Wild
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Diamonds in the waves
'til by and by sea kissed sky-
Many shades of blue.
Honeyed day of the roses
tangled on pathways of life.

Sweet strawberries wild,
birds screech ere cricket twilight-
Yellow Saturday.
Hoarse frogs on the lily pads

A Burgundy Sign
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Fruits of a long day
black cherries in sundown skies
Then deep purple night
We've long loved the sun
but now greet dusky shadows

The platinum moon
sends rich luster from afar
in the wild rose phase
The birds have not sung lately
