Three Days Away

The vines have extended
new tendrils questing to spread.
I go and loop them back
through the old pathways
of curlicues covering the fence.

The rainclouds – active (I’m told)
in my absence – turn sluggish,
moving away very slowly.
There seem to be many more
flies and mosquitoes. The cat
retreats back indoors.

Garden Moments

Spring breeze –
a dead leaf dangles
from a web

******

mosquito –
I reach, close my hand
on empty

Spring Things

black-and-white
visiting butterfly
quickly gone

******

fine morning
tiny birds flutter
in new leaves

******

yawning early –
last night late with sexy
new novel
