Timing Is All
for cherry blooms, crabapple flowers,
no pause for lilac buds. Iris stalks
rise like lava from core of Earth,
find a way up and through,
forging, fierce, relentless,
sense of timing
Sr. Regina Bechtle (2020)

sheaf of leaf,
A color beauty
burst of bloom,
The splendor smell
of sapling tree,
from the tomb!
