Three Nonets: Lizards, Pomegranates, and Blooming Magnolia

A poetry chain of lounging, planting, and looking

digital collage of original photography by writer in L.A.

I am sorry I scared you, lizard
with the sudden, cold burst of hose.
Scamper up the fence away.
Dry off, and absorb light.
Take me with you, please.
Let’s lounge and rest.
You, little
one, and
me.
