As the spring,
so the pink moon:
fuller
larger
rounder
than ever
filling
post pandemic
eyes
with proper
gratitude
for
spying it
past this
cloudy
northwestern
landscape
above
rooftops
steeples
bridges
endless
maple
walnut
oak
chestnut
trees,
dogs
barking
like
sad
wolf
wannabes,
sirens
wailing
like
a cheap prelude
to a restless
night
as warmth
beckons
newly unmasked
beings
into darkened
streets
teeth glowing
in the night light.

They’ve “taken
an ax”
broken
“the prison wall”
Knowing color
awaits them
in silence
in stillness
no more
running
frantic
but sliding
out
escaping,
hearts
in hand –
glowing embers
of rebirth,
a small
offering
to
the vast
night sky,
from
where you
are
just so many
fireflies
to make you smile.
We
too
must slide,
die,
all in good time;
for now
we stand below
ghost like
in the night air
cradling
our fears,
yet
longing
for quietness.

2021
Spring,
this:
a first kiss
messy
desire
cascading
in every bloom
after
so many days
of oneness
we meander
pause
stare
like
children
gazing
in disbelief,
drinking in
bright
mesmerizing
colors
like never before:
seeing
with every cell,
our eyes
wet with gratitude,
realizing
somewhere
in shadows
that the past
is never past
it’s always here
in the corners
of our man made
construct,
we take
comfort
for we have
out raced
fear
wrung
every drop
from our guts,
sun
warming
weary
city dwellers,
our brow
soft
un furrowed

a clean slate
of joy.
I hear a song
it thunders
past the sunset
into
the horizon,
a long lost
melody
of grace
a prayer
on wings
of ravens:
a long sigh
past the universe
far into
the ethers:
“lookout for my love”
it thunders
gone
but never gone
here but there
past
but never past….
Look out,
indeed
it’s all we have
now
then
always
one
in the same.
