A Blush Before Blooming

shy buds
gathering the confidence
to bloom

On A Hot Summer Day

the watering can
builds confidence
amongst the flowers

Backward Glance


filled with instinct
no doubts exist
smirking confidence

Confidence in Elders

counsel sought
of two great pines
knowledge shared in silence

Ascension

through the mist
a birch ascends
confident of heaven
