Tree

Jacaranda tree

Specks of greenery
spotted in a purple sea—
jacaranda blooms.

Rainfed

close up photo of a pink hibiscus flower after the rain, with raindrops on its surface

Flaunting plump raindrops,
proudly across a pink face,
pimply hibiscus.

Blossom

Swallowing the sun,
the night creeps over our homes,
a new rose blushes.

Old

Destroying itself,
feeds the next generation—
a week-old flower.

Wave

Hat tip for the sun,
welcoming wave to the moon—
roses in the breeze.
