a creature unknown splashes in the lotus pond — kerplunk! kerplunk!
morning frost melts with early rays of sunlight. primrose buds slacken.
flowers glow brightly
in the sunset’s low light,
and then go dark
spring flowers hang limply, after the downpour
camphor flowers, in a disheveled bouquet, stretch warmly
fleabane daisies brighten the roadside on an autumn day
