The palmetto
speaks with a rattle
against my hand.

Oak leaves echo
pizzicato
tumbling across
an empty intersection.

Oaks here save their leaves
for spring, dropping them
with the green snow
that dusts sidewalks
and cars alike.

Their green flowers
are strangely modest
for a plant so openly
exuberant.
