Ant Farm

Ants in black armor
Patrol the hibiscus leaves
Flocks of aphids graze.

Manna

A dropped ice cream cone
One red ant, then two, then four
Suddenly – hundreds!

Mushrooms

Umbrellas for ants
Colorful mushrooms spring up
After a night’s rain.

Armored

Beautiful grotesque
Ants like glittering chain mail
On a chicken bone.

Peonies

Fresh-picked peonies
Guardian ants scurrying
Down discarded stems.

Stirrings

Hives begin to buzz
Anthills rise from sidewalk cracks
Cities wake for spring.
