Both of these photos were taken on a rainy, overcast early morning at fields near Mt. Vernon, Washington.

The Image of a Tulip

The perennials
rising so quickly
wondering how
they grow so fast
The image of a tulip,
of a crocus, a daffodil
must be in the heart of each cell
coming from the earth
rising so well

In mere moments
growing so quickly
rising from the winter
rising to the sun
from the earth
to the warmth
of the new day
