in a slow reveal
the promise of spring is closer to being realized
branches stand clad in nubs soon to be buds
sparrows and starlings cling to fine branches like leaves that ought to be
time stands ready this season on this trip around the sun
will you be here to welcome the delicate white blooms of the pear tree?
will they enjoy the gentle flicker
in the spring breeze without your fleeting gaze?
it is a slow reveal
