despite everything
you are something quite special

on light

Venus overwhelmed
Her brilliance diminished
By Summer's radiance
The Moon tries to slip away
But such a familiar face
Is too easily spotted
You'll be back
Mark my words

window open to night
light retreats over hillcrest
lone blackbird's lament

clarity of air
petals open in song-filled trees
light conquers darkness

n.b. Northern Spring Equinox arrives!

spring equinox approaches
blackbirds herald dawn

such blue, bright white, shade
bitter bite of on-shore breeze
daffodil trumpets

bright start betrays you
beware the day's warm welcome
winter rules still hold

n.b. I’m sure we’ve all done it, misread the promise of a sunny morning to venture out in hope, before finding bright sunlight doesn’t always keep its promises.

This peacock butterfly was suffering by the time of January’s last sunset.
