The Steel Heron Presides

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

remnants of the wasp nest
disintegrating leaves
upon a bed of departing snow

Type in leafandtwig (all one word)
click on SETTINGS
select EMAIL

on the dormant garden’s

big shouldered
a granite monument
to strength and endurance

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
