Still Life

(not mine)

this ghostly remains

now a part of the landscape –

new life, as still life

For Colleens Tanka Tuesday where this week we are using this photo to write an Ekphrastic Poem. I kept it short.

Amidst decay, there can still be beauty as nature plays her part.

Exploring

exploring begins

for this springtime butterfly,

barely there blooms hide-

just a lone dandelion,

no mislaying this spring lure

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.

canopy undressed

blooms still in talks with nature

cherry blossom tales

Time – Senryu

she clings to the edge

of the circle of this life –

biding her time

Change

first chirps of twilight

as day lingers into night –

spring rounds the corner
