Applesauce 2

APPLESAUCE 2



Spherical firm apples

are sold as is.

Bruised misshapen

apples more quickly

become applesauce.

Wave smashed water

more quickly becomes mist.

The imperfect

are sometimes

more quickly liberated.











FLITTING THRUSH



Have you ever seen a saffron field

  full of bright orange stars  

a tiger lily meadow blush

  strewn with dottings of paintbrush

a fruited tree studded with

a flock of flitting thrush



(to Nancy L whose father gave

each of his children a flower..

hers was the tiger lily)







IRIS PARCHMENT



As always of old

the iris bud unfolds

her gilded parchment

of background gold



but the eye's iris

will unroll

the endless scroll

of her own soul

past where sea

foals

past the shoals

past dry land's

attempts to control



DAWN GREETING



dusk clouds setting

the sun did firesinge

gold fingered glowing

with adoring tinge

and then he slid away

but brought out his final rays

..

a light filled syringe

squirted last cloud with

a rosy fringe

and then he was gone

or so we thought

until he dripped through

morning's gate hinge



ROTTEN APPLE



Any rotten apple's

core-freed seeds

can clothe the earth in

orchards apple-treed.



Of honey bees it is the creed

that the sweetest dew

lies in hearts of

the most rejected weeds.
