“Don’t even think about it!”

warning instantaneous.

Maternal looks can make words

banal,

 extraneous.

 

More thanks to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives.

And to the D.J. Berg choice of forsythia wreath obviously coveted by the dove family.

Connections: April 23.18

“Seek and ye shall find”

applies in wintry spring

seeking signs of life

yet finding not a thing —

and then low-growing star

of lavenderish-blue

evokes a constellation

glitteringly new.

In palette vast

the earth enhues us;

with awe and wonder

it should infuse us.

If we grow smug

and shrug,

incondite,

it will rouse us with

loud peals of white.

 

 

Thanks more to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives for this glorious Earth Show.

May we come closer to stewardship on this Earth Day.

Away to the left

in a swatch of bright blue

patisserie aura

is hidden from view.

It’s easy to miss

if you don’t know it’s there,

but once it’s discovered

it’s a rapturous lair.

In its own mythic nook

removed, set apart,

it revels in oven-birthed

edible art.

And thus did these words

bring tears to my eyne

when I read the decree

on the world’s saddest sign.

 

 

Thanks yet again to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives.

And thanks to Rene’s Bakery, in the Broad Ripple area of Indianapolis, for its incredibly wonderful offerings.

My eye fixed on the ground

I sought the flowers of spring

then upward raised my lens

to capture sky and wing.

That was when I spotted

this behemoth on the tilt

sending me the message

I’m not so sturdy built.

The towering defunct giant

leaned into slender groove

it didn’t take me long

to decide that I should move.
