  • Seed pods, filigrees, the burst secrets
    Summer heat it's gone but this climate change
    The snow drought disruption
    Oregano is growing the pink mauve flowers of its
    rusty maroon rose now in December

    The rosemary is
    growing with curly leaf parsley lavender is icy
    grey but no ice yet double digit lawns hardly
    hospitable to flood for skate blades...Light
    jackets, herbs aflower, dry sidewalks too hot
    for gloves...what is this? California?

    No it's Canada
    The butterfly weed seed encasement exploded with
    feathery regalitos angel dusty cling-ons

    I love how the turbid shrinkage marries the
    green going strong

    No snow but the wings of springtime
    When burst flying seeds will settle
    Flung, refugeed
