Garden Thumbprint

As azaleas fade
lilacs awaken—    
wild cherries ripen    
honeysuckle beckons      
Wisteria petals    
escape the vine;    
glide naked    
across the lawn   
There is beauty    
in their demise    
and rebirth    
assuming its rightful place    
Neutrino streams    
emission of the stars—    
minute particles    
trillions each second    
passing in light speed    
through every living thing    
including us    
imprinting our birth    
with a genetic code:      
a human thumbprint    
we'll don until death      
Just as this lavender iris    
wilting on the stalk—    
contrary to her roots      
expanding deep  
within a lifeforce of earth
