nothing but a dumpster
and that brilliant azalea
blooming beside it

    on cedar branch--
    shuns roses in bloom

    debris --
    having served their purpose
    a dozen faded white roses

    starlings
    pecking by the dumpster

    First daisy in spring
    Arriving unattended
    Waits for other guests.

    Yap's Easter typhoon--
    among the debris
    a coconut sprouts

    down - in the valley
    growing wild
    white lilies
    nothing but
