Spring Dance

a pair of cardinals

in my garden – in spring dance

they zip here, fly there

pecking at freshly tilled soil

a cold and windy spring day

nearly scampering

across my feet, a squirrel

in flight from a cat

living – even in the wild

never without challenges

Exploring

exploring begins

for this springtime butterfly,

barely there blooms hide-

just a lone dandelion,

no mislaying this spring lure

Moonlight Jig

a crisp wind talking –

silhouettes of bare branches

caught in moonlight jig

ending in soft gentle sway-

the art of coming to terms

Sunflowers Backside🙂

big bold sunflowers

ambitiously cheerful blooms

dulls chill of winter

fuels my dreams of summer

even the buzz of their bees

Tanka Tuesday

noon day sun struggles
to fuse through stark autumn gray
a stillness clings fast –

massing onto bare branches
the silhouettes of black birds
