Trees Thinking About Leaves

encouraged
by the evergreens
tiny buds plump themselves

The Pond Opened For Song

opening ceremony
the joyful croaking chorus
of peepers peeping

The Steel Heron Presides

ah April
with her sunshine and snow
everything waiting to see which way it goes

The Shadow Lace Of Bare Trees

sunshine rests
on the dormant garden’s
bench

Morning Reveals

remnants
of a moonlight stroll
hoof prints amidst sparkle

February Narcissus

winter gazed
upon her own reflection
in the river

Ship Masts In The Meadow

resource to
man and beast
benevolent benefactors: trees
