Nouns, Colors, and Verbs out my Window

Trembling by the rain-black road –
white popcorn blooms jump and dive
as damp silver vans speed past.

Water in the fire pit stills after a breeze –
it shattered into wavering pieces the trees,
rippling beneath kisses of fallen leaves.

Birdbath, blue, is empty –
with a startle of feathers cardinal, red, complains,
departing into skies, grey with held rains.

Deep green spade leaves bob on their vines –
the ambitious squirrel rustles among them.
Death defying is the family business.

To dance with the dogwood –
one must listen to the wind,
learn freedom of mind, and looseness of limb.
