little bloom

little bloom
white flashing
in the reeds and leaves

fish turn and swim among slender stems
in cool waters below you

emerald frogs hide
from the day’s heat
in your wide shade
while you sit still
to collect morning dew
for swifts and swallows

risen above the water’s edge
now gently swaying
in summer breezes
you, oh willow pond’s
beautiful jewel
