In the Night Garden

In waves of pink,

azaleas surge,

crashing on night's shore.

* * *

Half moon, white peony,

light night together -

heaven to earth, and back.

* * *

Night wears

filigrees of leaves, set

with her bauble, moon.

* * *

Bewigged, crabbed branches

shake bouffant blossoms

at that suitor, moon.

* * *

Arms crossed,

plum tree hides a prim smile

beneath her cerise cloche.

* * *

Creek rushes, whispering.

Wind chimes faster, faster.

Treetops toss, breathe, breathe.
