Blending In

wearing the colors
of your surrounds
your spirit flashes through

Of Intricate Design

cloisonne’d wings
on an
all green being

Well Matched

unexpected warmth
a shaft of light
the robin’s table set

River Wilds

leopard spots
zebra stripes
camouflage of ice

The Ascetic

a monk of a moth
in birch bark robes
prostrate in prayer
