Mother’s Day: linked verse sequence

spunk water pool in the approximate shape of a heart reflecting the blue sky and freshly opened oak leaves

Mother’s Day
setting out the tomato plants
to toughen up

last year’s oak apple gall
a door left open

spring azure
with my cellphone camera
stalking the sky

in oak leaf-out time
the bare crowns of the dead

dogwood blossoms
so many ways to dress up
as the sun

carpenter bee
working the blueberries

a birder’s pish
several warblers falling
for fake news

two hawks circle high
on the heat from my roof

the same spunk water pool but this time focusing in on the reflection
