The Petunia Looking Back

deep inside
a piercing
green eye

Form’s Fragility

delicate intricacy
each part
depending on the next

Subzero Heat

siren’s call
across the frozen landscape
red hot red


two bright poppy eyes
one wears shade
mascara-ed stamens

Flowering Sundial

is measured
by the lily’s shadow

Purple Reign

purple crown
the sovereign rule
of poppy’s bloom

Hester’s Pride

amaryllis, amaryllis
scarlet maiden
stakes her claim
