rose hips like cherries
powdered milk snow white landscape
punctuated red

herringbone pattern
perpetual gliding slopes
crystallized breathing

Soft Confetti

Momentary euphoria
oak and beech
letting go
soft confetti
undressing without pretense
because they must.

They will stand, naked.

Can't catch them anymore
or keep them off my floor
resigned to their piling up
at my feet
primary colors shouting
the end
while we exit the garden
aware of our nakedness
and covering ourselves
with leaves.

Appears in Festival of the Trees #30.
