Featured Poem April 1, 2019

One from my upcoming book of poems- Inner Sunset. These past few warm days set my winter kale to blossoming.


The kale went to flower
and then seed.
In the midday warmth,
pale green cabbage butterflies
swirl and ride on yellow stars
exploding out of plant tops,
sparks from wands,
slow motion fireworks.
House finches and titmice
hunt for sparks
that cascade to earth
beneath the bountiful sky.
