Flowering up high.
The wind blows, and they drift down.
Pink petals carpet.
edging the tree trunks
fungi catch the weightless flakes
perches for snowfall
frozen apples hang
high in the snowy forest
thin layer of ice
beneath reflection and snow
looks like the night sky
Nestled beside zucchini logs and onion bundles.
Spilling from a flimsy wooden box.
Pocket-size paper lanterns?
Husks grass to blush.
Petite globe fruit packages.
Green apple, roasted pineapple flesh.
New ritual for the summer pre-meal ceremonies.
Shucking corn, snapping beans, unwrapping ground cherries.
