LAURELS AND LILACS

by Jnana Hodson

with all the rain, the waterfalls are full
I see them now as stairs or stair steps
rather than a plummet

from the bridge, look down on cormorants

full lunar eclipse       RED MOON
by my not-so-north attic window

amid the rhododendron in the tall pine lane
in the burial ground
we have mountain laurels

white star fists
open into
porcelain teacups

lilacs
open

garden parables
