Connections: April 26

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAMy neighbors’ yards bejewelled

by April cloisonne

— tulips’ dazzling hues

bowing in the May —

shine more brightly

than does mine

with shyly clever

columbine.

In canny metamorphosis

it changes jester hat

for coronet of wings —

a tulip can’t do that!

As spring gives way to summer

and tulips sag to brown

my columbine laughs last

in green and ruffly mound.
