Lilac Hills

trailing a rust-red
oil tanker as it rumbles
over causeway past
cat-tail swamp fronds

pasenger window rolled
down, air smells of
asphalt refinery and
stirred up dust cloud

the medians are alive
with spring blossoms
purple, white, yellow
life is in frenzy

flower petals spread
for pollenation,
dandelion spore parasols
flit on bee-busy winds
