Fold

Close up photo of a mushroom on a moist ground, with a rouge weed near it.

Mushrooms after rains:
nature’s own origami;
life between the folds.

Yogi

Close up photo of the bud of a native hibiscus.

A flower, content,
retreating into child’s pose,
fades away slowly.

Marked

Bio logical,
symbolising uniqueness—
Prints on a petal.

Defiant

close up photo of the leaves of a cabbage that hasn't formed a head

Rogues in my garden—
cabbages that won’t form heads,
classroom rule breakers.

Scarred

Battle scar trophies
lining a veteran’s arms—
tired old peach tree.
