haiku spawning . . .

Spent leaves plunge each fall
sprout respite is good-natured
innate resilience.

Don’t fear life sentence
as icy pond engulfs frog
winter suspension.

Chernobyl microbes
nuked but never forgotten
nature pranks atom.

Salmon fry fly by
despite river upheaval
trusty spawn influx.

Starfish minus arm
tidepool abracadabra
striving to be whole.
