ice cream pearls     pinecones    pieces of cloud    tender fronds    cardinal staccato
moss-veined twigs    coneflower petals    kite tails    sea glass    mist
thunder’s edge    grass perfume    rain-stained rocks   
slice of titian sunset    Chinese yo-yo
lace fragments
tumble & slide down
a woodsy chute lined with Aegean
sea tangle glistening like crocodile eyes into your soil-
smudged waiting hands trembling with anticipation like childhood
