on frosted grass
oily black crows
squabbling

cutting the sky
into little pieces
the old oak

that purple magnolia

opens its blousey blooms

with intention 

 

spring is dangerous

we can believe

in anything

 

 

a stretch in the spring

where proof is small

all is promise

 

 

cutting through

the remains of winter

swords of iris

 

 

fat and woozy 

the bees nuzzle open

a red tulip

 

 

buddha sitting

in a patch of purple crocuses

inhaling spring

    Beautiful work. Especially love these lines: "the go ahead and breathe it’s okay freedom found in this in-between time." That's one of my own favorite things about this time of day.
