A tulip stands alone, in new,
green growth on the forest floor.

Bright, yellow daffodils dazzle midst old, brown cattails.

Green and white trilliums make a spectacular ground
cover in contrast to the brown earth and rotting leaves.

A motionless green and brown Leopard Frog is cleverly camouflaged
against old, beige grass of winter and new, green grass of spring .

I bask in warm, morning sun on an old, black tyre by a dock.

I stretch my neck as far as I can above the surface to see
if another Midland Painted turtle is nearby in the lake.
