Of life beneath

Like a painted vein traced on a pale face

A black paper case unveils

soft silver cat tails.

Curious and uncertain,

quartered saffron strands of tissue paper petal

unfold from each downy leather purse-

Witch hazel stick insect stems

revealing their position

on a day not made for flowers.


Singular black spots, not dot to dot

punctuate a tree top

An all day roost

standing out in this ice speck drizzle

A sanguine silhouette

against the shallow thin sun
