Playful

under this bright afternoon sun

spring no longer slumbers

birds mass near blooms, they sound undone

playful, loud no hummers!

Canopy

Taken 4/28/19

I have been trying to find time to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. I am particularly interested in seeing what is happening to the cherry tree canopy at the Cherry Esplanade.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to. But from what I have been seeing here and there in the neighborhood, cherry blossoms are still in their early stages.

The magnolia tree up the block seems to be farther along.

blooms still in talks with nature

Elm – Flower of the Day

I think it’s a flower, looks more like buds on the way to being something fancy.

spring has sprung

no cherry blossoms yet

but everything else

wears a knowing smile

Time – Senryu

she clings to the edge

of the circle of this life –

biding her time
