A Delicate Dare

Their small heads

Rise proud

In mid-trail.

Delicate and fierce

They stretch their

Full miniature scale.

The risk they take

Of being

Stepped on,

Dwarfed by delicious

Access

To sun.

In orchid garden

They bloom.

A speckled glory,

A boon.

A blushing show

Well adored,

In nature’s awe

And reward.

A nascent blush

Promises

The sweetness

To come

And holds the space

For what is yet

To form.

Sky and clouds

Take a swim

As day fills

To the brim,

And the light

Lets you know:

As above

So below.

Itty Bitty Hugely Pretty

Tiny shoots of tender growth

Fill meadows’ hearts

With glorious froth.

The pastel blooms

Are itty bitty

But they sure are

Hugely pretty!

Angels’ Winds

The air pristine

On angels’ winds,

Unspoiled by what

Mans’ hands can bring.

In feathered clouds

And oceans’ swing,

It heralds surf

Of joy within,

To mark the waves

With dance that gleams,

And breathes along

A song to sing

For all that dreams.

Dressed not in flowers

But leaves

It still glory

Receives,

Glowing without

Reserve

To the accolades

It deserves.

Seated Snow

A look back

To what is a

Near future indeed

When snow will

Again

Take a seat

And winter will

Once more

Repeat.

 

 

Note: No filter was used. This was the actual monochrome light on a sudden snowy morning this past April.
