Nature's Paintbrush


Indian Paintbrush, Johnston Ridge, 2011

Nature's paintbrush
works in simple strokes--
seeds sown pointillistically
blossom into meadows;
single snowflakes coalesce,
growing glistening glaciers--
minutely redecorating
the canvas she blanked
in yesterday's grand gesture.


Mt. St. Helens, 2011
