riotous unruly red maple
Supreme, unchallenged, with gaudy intentions,
a feast of sensual delights, if somewhat overbearing,
rapturously shedding scarlet.
Climber, knife, saw, care full cuts delimiting shape,
trim beauty, revealing clandestine symmetry.
Delightful delicate revelation
adorned softly in crystal white.
Winter’s stark perfection,
surreptitiously awaiting sprigs,
ever hopeful renewal.
