ripe apples, wildrosing, water all, waters of life, wallflower shade, trees can’t scream, God dances in all

RIPE APPLES

Sun and shade
the rye dapple
as the sun
swells ripe apples

WILDROSING

Spring
is wildrosing
the rye

WALLFLOWER SHADE

Wallflowers
in the shade
not permitted to
dance with the sun.

Cinderella …
banned
from the after
midnight moon

WATERS OF LIFE

For those with
thirst panting
are God-designed
watermelon canteens

For the ants and
bees….
curled leaves…
rain-bearers

and for long
journeys
coconuts…
water carriers

WATER ALL

From every stream
and each waterfall
From every lake
and puddle
water’s uniting with all

TREES CAN’T SCREAM

Fish can’t scream.
Trees can’t scream,
when they’re axed or
hooked in the stream.

GOD DANCES IN ALL

God does dance
in each beetle
every ant
all rats and mice
all weeds
every plant.
