“Orion’s Belt Humming Bird” watercolor painting by D.R. Hubbell, February 2020

We head South to see the whales

Old growth forest, rooted trails

We move west while standing still

A subduction zone beneath our feet

Pushing up and out to the ocean

In time and motion with the sea

Snow moon comes again

A frozen glow shines through February’s mist

The humming birds stay with us

Orion’s belt between Betelgeuse and Rigel keeping company

We have worn this winter well through icy winds

and restless swells

because I can always find a warm fire burning

a place of safety

in your eyes.

‘Wild Iris Seeds and Fall Leaves” watercolor by D.R. Hubbell, November 2019

Your fall 

leaves me

yellow

scarlet

brown

Soil sleeps beneath a compost quilt

Your November smile

is warm in my eyes,

The wild Iris

in the yard

with bright

red seeds.
