SLANT OF LIGHT

In a slant of light
poinsettia red
overhangs wire
sustaining crimson
bougainvillea
tissue bloomed
carmine hues
prickly barrier
intruders beware
perihelion passed
a month ago, sun
moves north, 6
south of here
barely a slant
more direct if not
dull greens accent
rain waits Easter week
bright showcase
blossoms celebrate
in warm breeze
winds often accelerate.
