Slow Reveal

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

Time

My mom is at home on hospice care.  Her independence has been dealt a blow. Dementia reared its ugly head but, she forges on. At times she drifts.

in talks with long gone kin

peers across dimension

without much intension

a slip in time..

Spring

I went for a walk today. The park is still snow layden, white, crisp and has yet to be walked upon. Further down, before I came upon this scene there were lots of geese walking in a line. It seems they were taking care not to walk on the snow. Or maybe they were just foraging. It was odd to see.. a waddling line of geese.

Blow & Bird

gusts of wind blow waves
through an ocean of tall grass –
flock of birds scatter
