SUMMER TIME by ELIZABETH KOUHI

Dancing Roadsides

waltzing daisies, jiving buttercups
tangoing yellow hawkweed
as their orange cousins
beat the drums of summer

Aspen leaves
Lessons from granddaughterJane

I've seen them flutter
I've seen them tremble
But now I hear them
gently clapping

Magic

Suddenly, there you were
in the middle of our well-trodden
muddy yard, blossoming
like a miniature queen;
four yellow petals
atop unobtrusive leaves
on a slender stalk.
