you offer your beauty
to the whole world

Beauty’s Second Duty


perfectly pretty
the petaled
mulch

Delectatio


nothing is neutral
everything
is on its way

Woozy Beauty


a blooming tree
the blush of pink
intoxicating beauty

Beacon


in May’s blue sky
liberty’s torch
bears magnolia’s flame

before bursting into being
possibilities illuminate
the breath of every second

before the existence of bees
the magnificence of magnolias
relied on the kindness of beetles

Each Moment’s Bloom

so sweet the day
the air brand new
each moment blooms before me

Enchantment

a poetry of branches
and music in the light
a pause before the blooming
sweet magnolia May

esprit de corps

Her tutu a flutter
magnolia dances to the wind song
the tree an assemble en tourant, grand

Sweet Magnolia

The bright blue sky bites with cold.
Buds hunker down waiting for a warmer sun
to shed their fuzzy jackets and unfurl petaled perfection.

Innocence


The magnolia sends forth her first blossoms
into the rare air of March that feels like May.
The sunshine calls and she answers yes in unfurling petals.
