Flirt

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

Recycling Day

Ice on the sidewalks
A discarded Christmas tree
Shelters the sparrows.

Festivities

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

Drill Team

The last cicadas
Shrill their dry trill through treetops
Rattled by the breeze.

Waxwings

Sleek cedar waxwings
Murmur in the mulberries
Drowsy afternoon.

Chrysomelid

Golden-green beetles
Turn the willow leaves to lace
Nature’s subtle art.

Festoon

Paulownia trees
Fling their purple plumes skyward
Springtime fireworks.
