beyond 
the reach of  bumble bees
a zinnia in bloom




In January 2016, NASA announced that a zinnia which had blossomed on the International Space Station was the first flower ever grown outside the Earth's biosphere.

how fleeting the taste
of your name on my tongue

shaking sky...
in the wheat field
a scurry of mice
