A Welcome Intruder

Outside my window

an unplanted tree took root

and grew, providing a trampoline

for squirrels, a resting place for birds, 

white blossoms for bees,

and splashes of shade for me.

Brightenings

It was so subtle,

that sudden shift of light, 

I couldn’t tell which

grew brighter, the buttercups,

the trees, or possibly me.
