CORNCOCKLE

pink little darlings
holds nefarious intent
in fragile silk sheathes

CHINESES LANTERN

Chinese lantern
the brightness within
a bee

dancing under bright twilight
buzzing factory worker

flowers by the door
nameless except for the color
of these blue days

straining listening to them
echoes of soft monotone

sheaves of grass
water that does not break
flows in ripples

not lost but merely transformed
tempestuous blue waters

late summer grasses
above their roots the seeds
nearly touching

the faintest touch of pale sun
seeds the earth with its beauty

barbed wire
the best berry bushes
double-thorned

suspended tasty treasures
often difficult to grasp

in foggy moonlight
blackberries float in cream
her nails are blue

poised on the tip of tongue
taste and deliciousness
