Flirt

Layers of pink tulle
Double-flowering cherries
Flounce their underskirts.

Bejeweled

The first rays of dawn
Set each grass blade glittering
Dewdrops en pavé.

Royal Icing

Another spring snow
The daffodil’s golden crown
Capped with ermine white.

Rite of Spring II

Sacrificial dance
Downy snowflakes whirl and fall,
Kiss the earth – and melt.

As the World Turns

Vernal equinox
Though the wind is bitter cold
Hope – spring’s eternal.

Exequies

Last day of winter
Dark clouds weave the season’s shroud
Mourning raindrops fall.

Out Like a Lion

Wet snow, icy rain –
Winter’s weather quota filled
Two days before spring.
