Palimpsest

Fallen plum blossoms
Translucent on wet pavement
The day after rain.

Samaras

Maple samaras
Tiny green helicopters
Twirling from the trees.

Geometrid

Hidden in plain sight
A gray moth on gray tree bark
Waits for night to fall.

Flirtation

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

Birdwatching III

Bluer than sapphire
Singing from a budding tree
Indigo bunting.

Arboretum

Magnolia petals
Folded over like wet boots
Line the garden path.

Sakura II

Wind through cherry trees
Fragile petals shaken loose
Drifting like pink snow.
