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



Urban detritus
Heaped in a small garden plot
Still – white crocuses.

Royal Icing

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


Warm spots of deep pink
Bring a flush to winter’s cheek
December roses.

Out of Season IV

Pink cherry blossoms
Don’t they know it’s December?
(Shh! Nobody tell!)

Mood Indigo

Late-season pansies
White petals veined with pale blue
Sensing winter’s chill.

Double Helix II

Spiral squash tendrils
Entwined with morning glories
Which vine climbs which vine?
