Samaras

Maple samaras
Tiny green helicopters
Twirling from the trees.

Flirtation

A fresh gust of wind
Lifts the weeping willow’s skirt
Swirling green pollen.

Jewelweed

Pale green jewelweed
Silverplated by the dew
Early May morning.

Allium

Purple fireworks
Bursting from a long green stem
Allium in bloom.

Spring Morning

Watercolor sky
Awaits the painter’s last touch
Just before sunrise.

Grapes

Bursting on the tongue
Juicy purple amethysts
A stem of black grapes.

Harbinger II

Listen – in the sky
Tiny jet planes twittering
Chimney swifts are here!
