Marching toward the fire, moths wait like scattered
pieces of a forgotten chessboard.
Transfixed by a midnight spell, a wasp
surveys life through a one-way mirror.
A lazy sun sets slowly on a departing bumblebee,
ending the evening solitude with
a secret confession.
Bumblebee | Bombus impatiens
A House wren with nothing to lose hides from
the moon, her dreams still echoing
in the tangled leaves.
House Wren, Troglodytes aedon
Another page from my new picture book with Helen Frost, Sweep Up the Sun.
The official publication date is March 10, 2015, and we had a great
book launch over the weekend at Book Beat. Everyone who purchased
a book received a little bird drawing on the title page.
Here’s the website with all the news, reviews and up-to-date information
for the book: BugDreams.com/sweep/.
