of genetic mystery,
shyly rising among fragments of oak litter,
Hurry! reach for sun's gentle tongues
before trees fledge green flight
White bud, capped
in lime petals,
inflate your ephemeral
plaited wings, rubbing spring's
final pink moments from the celestial bowl
Stretch: a lantern of opaque skin,
flashing veins, rippled, fuscia-
enscripted in lilting cadences;
a song of striated sequences
and unpredictable rhythms
- sue holloway
Getting a taste of God's creation as it should be!
