CONTRASTS

Yes!

tufted titmouse

Tufted titmouse
Twittered from
A nearby thicket

A spring steel trap
Blued from crucible heat
Tinged, with iron oxide patches
Lie hidden under forest litter
Ready to snap shut
Inflict pain, even death
On the unsuspecting

Bulging flower buds
Oozed nectar, enticed ants
Bees crawled in sticky
Anticipation of beauty
About to burst forth
In royal splendor
