red hibiscus
the dart and swoop
of today’s hummingbird

my daughter giggles
at sparkling juice bubbles—

winter rain—
I miss a stitch

pre-dawn flurries—
all these Christmas trees
among the trash cans


crunch of snow
teaching my daughter
the chickadee’s call

new diagnosis—
avoiding frozen puddles
all the way home

lake effect—
the depth of the deer tracks
across my driveway

Father's Day
our bubbles
chase each other
