Jenny Wren

Shy
little brown
bird, hopping, creeping
around the rockery, Jenny
Wren.

Self-Set

Blue forget-me-nots
self-set in the rockery.
My happy surprise.

Re-fleshed

More snow overnight
covers the rockery stones again,
bones re-fleshed.

Emergence

Slowly the snow retreats.
The rockery stones begin to emerge
like the bones of a decaying carcass.

Sunshine and Showers

Sunshine and showers
and the rockery displays
a rainbow array
of welcome flowers.

Ornaments

Ornamental Snail
Today I fetched in the garden ornaments
to protect them from the frost.
How bare the rockery looks.

Daydreaming (Garden Fairy)

Garden Fairy

Daydreaming in the rockery,
dozing in the sun,
sheltered by the greenery,
hoping no humans come.
