blue moon wisteria
huddles with gardenias –
the plum blossoms gone,
they look older than they are,
ancient cottage eaves.

this journey through time
carves a route back to the earth

Yesterday, I went walking at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Everything has sprung!! I came upon this show at the lilly pond where there was a visitor.
The attendant said there’s usually two of them that visit every day.
And that they didn’t live there
It was amazing to watch!!
He put on quite a show. The odd thing was, he stayed right between these two lilly pads. Even with all his antics!!
He said a harty goodbye before taking flight.
