The Fields Green

verdantly
spring takes hold
birch raise their chartreuse flag

Like A Tattered Flag


the barn endured
dutifully
despite the wear

White Flags Departure


white flags raised
the field
is surrendered

Prayer Flags


the birch in worship
waving her prayer flags
for us

Duty

in service
to the season
cliffside color clings

Veteran’s Flag

long departed
still our freedom stands
on their sacrifice
