one regret

sheets of rain
throbbing against the window

I’m remembering …
the umbrella you gave me
was in the backseat
when you drove away

crocus

velveted petals
opening for my purview
offer a glimpse of
pale stamen thrusting upward
covered in yellow pollen

haiku

early daffodils
blackbirds blanketing the lawn
still expecting snow
