26 May
to mossy rooftop to tree filled yard
all confetti with leaves and seeds
around the grass the timber fence
next door the golfers ride their carts

beyond this tangle-wood walnut trail
toward the lake wood snow-belt town

survey the warming earth in bloom
the maple tree helicopter seeds whirl
the apple trees flowering in may
with fluffy pink petals up and down the street

the look out my second-floor window glass
as i from my cold shower pass
in this overgrown forest cottage home
reflecting how long

3.5 10/10
sonnet with iambic tetrameter or irregular meter, no rhyme
