on frosted grass
oily black crows

cutting the sky
into little pieces
the old oak



Sondra Byrnes 




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



Sondra Byrnes

    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.
