Poem: “Suspended”

Standard

Translucent in the sun,

Suspended in the breeze,

Cut against the sapphire

Of the evening sky–

They are always changing,

budding, blooming, breaking.

Poem: “The Sprig”

Standard
The Sprig

The rubber tires clipped it,
	so we tenderly spaded
And edged out the roots.

The three glossy leaves
	were crisp with promise
And we saw a wholesome trunk.

But foresight ended there.
	Betrayed in a sea of grass,
The sprig stood bravely.

However, the season's shaving,
	grooming, and engraving
Denuded its barkless shaft.
