The Chipmunk’s Mediation

perched upon
the dahlia stake
contemplating plenty

Sweet Perfection

make mine
two scoops
of chocolate dahlia

Intensity


not to be outdone
by turning maples
the stoplight dahlia

Dahlias In The Background


bookends of summer
monarchs on
Buddleia

Oh Dahlia


lady in red
takes
her star turn

Appreciation


moment
with a flower
highlight of the hour

On the Sideline


pompoms
of petaled color
cheering on fall

Enchantment


curving petal
the flower’s wink
magic in everything
