(The Words) Olive Trees

Spring Beauty

A trillium blooms
in woodland
where I walk
its burgundy petals
stunning
against
withered leaves
I don’t pick it
knowing
how fragile
and short lived
this spring beauty is
hope that others
passing by
will notice
appreciate
its symmetry
of threes
I photograph
the enchanting flower
standing erect
solitary
beneath trees
solitary
like me
a springtime wayfarer
in budding grove

In the ‘zine’ Olive Trees, I’d like to expose you to art, literature and editorial comment, which I am proud to be the editor for the last 26 years. At some date I am hoping to turn this “zine” into it’s own web-site, possibly even a pod cast.
