February Renaissance


Plum Tree Blossom

my morning alarm goes off:
a family of
red-headed woodpeckers
enjoying a breakfast buffet
of pine cones above me

a charm of hummingbirds
is scoping the joint
more curious than hungry
fuschia flashes amidst
a flurry of feathers
green with the sheen
of a summer in winter

a solitary bee
wonders among
my oxalis forest
stealing goodies
from the 5-petaled
golden flowers
that make you believe
they’re not a weed

I stretch and giggle

it’s a February renaissance
for all of us
