Still Green

in the morning sun
frost into dew

Surely Shirley The Poppy

all ruffles and fringe
purple and orange


sit awhile
and listen to
the flowers conversation

Going to Seed

fragile yellow lace
sturdy blue crowns
August counterparts

Purple Reign

purple crown
the sovereign rule
of poppy’s bloom

All Is Now

when the garden blooms
memories of winter
are exiled
