Tree Whisperers

Joan McNerney

Blue diamond rains

filigree of golden light

so many shades of green.

Sun beams on a single leaf.

This small star pulsating

from my wet apple tree.

Bright new leaf

fits hand perfectly---the future

lies in your palm.

After the long rain

pine trees bending

with cones.

Sugar maple trees

sashaying with autumn winds

all dressed up in yellow lace.

Branches etch evening sky

turning razzle dazzle

purple red citron.
