“Spring Nuptials” by Maria Walton

Spring Nuptials 

The Japanese Maple

was wearing a crystal veil 

this morning―

All dressed up 

like Nature’s blushing bride―

an aura of rouge

about her silhouette―

and crystal beads

of rain

in the lacework

of her twiggy branches

and emerald velvet sleeves―

(Spring 2021)
