HE DIED ONLY LAST WEEK

Snow watered tulips

pushing through winter compost.

Signs of life! So rude.

QUICKLY

After Tuesday’s snow –

heavy, wet, breaking branches –

Wednesday’s sun was sweet.

 

FALL ON THE ROCKS

Virginia Creeper

bleeding down my back rock wall.

Snow is on its way

INTERLOPER

I see you bindweed

riding Virginia Creeper

across the back wall.

Do not even think

I will allow you to stay,

after all the hail.

TRIP

Blasted purple eye!

I meant only to arrive,

not fly up the steps

.

 

DEFIANCE

Hail be damned!  Lilies,

despite annihilation,

thumb their bright noses

VINCA MAGIC

My sweet Lord!  that hill

awash with heavenly blue

soothes a heavy heart

 

 

 

AND NUMBER THIRTY

Haiku to end the run

***

April is complete

Snow storms, broken trees, Easter

thirty poems in…

WET CLEAN UP ON FIVE

Do not just stand there!

Mop up that spreading blind sludge

well before dinner!

DEADLINE

Champagne is chilling
