rain falls on hot sidewalks
in the steam i see strangers
a child trips on her red boot
southern flannel moth emerges from a silk cocoon
like a new bride in yellow
bees drink nectar from a milkweed
lillie’s laugh, a mockingbird calls
discarded weeds wither
pruning last years garden
seedlings stand proud
tiny garden glove
in the black soil
