bloodroot 500

Beneath the gravel,
bleeding roots feed a flower
swaddled by thick leaves

open seed pod 500

Exposed and captive,
seven seeds lack the freedom
to sprout their new lives

pine needles 500

Lively and lissome
tender plumes of evergreen
bow down to the wind

submerged leaves

Submerged and swirling
an icy current herding
faded, weightless leaves.

orchid black and white

Flirtatious and shy,
a superb anatomy
undressed by sunlight.
