Social Contact on the Morning Stroll

Forget-me-nots
never blinking
dare to stare

Minerís lettuce says
Letís do lunch

Bay leaf stirs
for soup

Columbine dangles
a delicate kiss

Milkmaids wiggle
white bottoms

Monkey flower laughs
tongue waggling

Maidenhair fern
blushes, shy

Poppies shout
Weíre here! And here!

Redwood endures
bending with breeze

A nice walk for my spirit before I venture out with the dog for my body's walk.
