Defying The Elements


sweet hydrangea
her summer bloom lingers
on a honeycomb of petals

Defiance

blazing colors
defy the drought
and celebrate the heat

Ruffled

outside winter approaches
while defiant violet
flaunts her ruffled skirts

Undaunted


by winter’s demands
evergreens refuse to release color or needles
and stand in defiant contrast to the ever greying landscape.
