Small messages of spring  ⋮  A gust of wind.

  1. Not every gust of wind brings a shower
    of tender petals—

    so soft and white, resembling the moon’s light.

  2. Nearby trees of apricot and cherry
    disintegrate helplessly
    all over my front garden, into my glass of chai—

    like two people falling in love.

  3. Countless small moons under the unrelenting sun
    all over my front garden.

    I gather a fistful and chew happily.
