My poems reflect, sometimes, what I am feeling, or seeing, and sometimes, what I see in others and their lives. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx "To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.

Winter's end (repost)

Rate: 6 Flag

Winter's end

Rate: 8



Jagged rounds, twig on twig, way up high

Against airy canvas of cerulean sky


Atop trunk’s widespread span, within limb’s reach

Over weather-curled birch covering, wet with bleach



Color gone by sun’s beatings, still leaving its mark

Next to other trees, shredded and peeling bark

Falling to ground on fulvous debris’ bed


A flattened mélange of sharp points and textures dead

And there, shadowed, nearly hidden, a sprout, neon green

Seemingly announcing the beginnings of spring’s scene

A change welcomed, as is sun, filtering in this way

Putting an end to the sameness of winter’s display.
