red pompoms
raised high in the deep blue sky
cheering on spring

Miraculousness

the daring of the early bloomer
tiny yellow trumpets
hail the sun

the hopscotch

Fountain Of Light

springing forth
in the darkening woods
each blade a splash of light

Spring Morning In The Garden

a feast
of delicacies

the rock garden
a riot of color

spring takes hold
birch raise their chartreuse flag

Goddess Of The Moon

outstretched
you offer your beauty
to the whole world

They Appeared From Seemingly Nowhere

a cohort
of bloodroot
laughing in the sun

tiny explosion
a potency
