Lilacs

Unfolded purple chrysalis,
spotted are the lilacs
with morning droplets.

Accenting my garden
where the sun, birds, and moon hearken
to a mortal’s burden in silence


Morning Tea

Amber as the eye of dawn,
warm is the sunlight in my cup.
A pinch of sugar topped with a mint leaf,
memories of youth and the future
swirl in the purity of nature before me.

Failure,
outlined by mistakes,
is a colored portrait
of blood, sweat, and tears.
Judge too quick,
the piece will never be finished.
