~cherry picking

forget the sun
she wants storms
a wild urge to thunder
the season
to straddle the roots
as sky-sweat pierces the naked
slimleaf spreads wetness
penetrates pink petals
inch by inch
embrace this ache, the slow deflowering
heavy air pants like breath
thrusts
until it bursts in sharp release
coming in the garden
an unshy butterfly & her torn wings
a shuddering wind
moving through her

~notes on winemaking

    tilt your head, small bird
listen to the coming rain moisten
the tree as she
lifts her leaves to flirt with
wind

observe the way her slight limbs
sway
the delicate shape of her boughs
pressing
arcing against the plum skin of a
thundering sky
pressing
until plump clouds burst
blackberries to wine

tilt your head, small bird
as she flowers like dogwood
