Leafy April

4 seasons, Spring is one of them,
1st one to get a shout out.
April in Spring but March takes
first mention.

2nd part of Spring, April showers,
any time of the month.
Spraying flowers with raindrops
without cessation.

Zero mention of Winter frost
during April showers.
Summer flowers adorn fields
in our fixated imagination.

Why think of Spring flowers
when rain pours over concrete?
By pass the soaking raincoats
and umbrellas in torrential downpours
that fall in gradation.

Riverlets

The fresh summer’s
cool, brushed breeze,
carries with it rivulets
in the gush, that soon trickles,
easily, in the clear water, that
gurgles, then gushes as the
rocks waver in the rush brushing
the fresh water strings of micro sword, anubius nana, ensconced in a cluster of hornworts, and cryptocorynes and moss.
The brook gushes as would a blushing novice.

Summer changes

Summer Changes
My mind wonders over the leaves
in directions the wind blows,
in one direction then the opposite,
flushing sharp points across the
way, my mind wonders this way
and that.  Never stopping for a moment’s breath
never, no, forever wondering this way and that.
My mind ponders over the way 
the leaves gather, still.  Until
the wind brushes them into any direction,
this and that, no way there but
everywhere here.  My mind wonders,
it ponders well.  Deep into my inner mind,
Until I understand the nature of summer, 
a nature I know is warm as the weather,
when it wants to be humid and pollinated,
as the bees and wind that scatter 
the seeds of life giving flowers.
