earlyspringpoem #2

tiny green trillium trefoil tiny
pied trout lily leaves tiny
frondsy dutchman’s britches
tiny spring beauties already in
blossom other leaves and
shoots unidentifiable I’m sorry
to be stepping on you here in
the woods you wee ones are so
many amid the crunchy drifts
of leaves the fat plush bluebells
are easy to avoid some already
blooming makes me wonder
though what else where else
who else I’ve been stepping on
because I’m not bothering
to look to think to be aware
