Air of spring



tiny leaf uncurls, 
soft as a baby's pink hand, 
bark of chestnut oak 
           

~0~0


bark of chestnut oak,
touch of green bud, bold as red
ripe plums on table



~0~0



ripe plums on table, 
beside pink wax flower blooms, 
buzzing yellow bee 


~0~0


buzzing yellow bee, 
garden bed of white snowdrops, 
tiny leaf uncurls
