Flirtation

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

Jongleur

Droplets slide down stems
Plash and splash from twig to twig
Leaflets juggle rain.

For J.

Willows

Willows veiled in green
Dangle fingers in the stream
Springtime reverie.

Aubade

Red-winged blackbirds call
Trilling, thrilling “o-ka-lee”
Waking up the marsh.

Equinox

Stars and planets dance
Into perfect alignment
Vernal equinox.

Pansies

First flowers of spring
Pansies raise purple faces
Squinting at the sun.

Zephyr

A late-winter wind
Tries to shake the trees awake
The air smells like spring.
