Early Christmas treats
Red finches pluck the berries
From a holly wreath.


Ripe nightshade berries
Robins stain their yellow bills
With bright crimson juice.

Labor Day

Summer’s last picnic
Children spitting melon seeds
At the school year’s face.


Sleek cedar waxwings
Murmur in the mulberries
Drowsy afternoon.


Fragrant herb garden
Pollen-heavy honeybees
Ride the purple sage.

Citrus III

An orange helix
Coils down to the table
Fresh-peeled tangerine.

Adorned II

Peridot necklace
Bright green maple samaras
Strung on slender twigs.
