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

knots

spring breeze

revealing itself

in the fine tremors

of the pear blossoms

playful shadow

cast by a butterfly in flight

under the noon day sun

these moments in time I reach for

when my stomach is in knots

by events out of my control

Change

first chirps of twilight

as day lingers into night –

spring rounds the corner
