April

Dried leaves
flutter across retina

Spring gusts
pop stop move along
crawl catch scurry scurry
duck walk
jump twirl hold
lifted up and up
flying
returning

Blur
burned image
receding
winged body’s sudden arc
up
impossible to see
details
vibrating

Consciousness
ready waiting
like a patient dog
there in the great oak’s
shadow
for more

Glowing ending dream
unfurled eons
light to years
to moments
emblems
crumbling icons
last breath let out
exhaled remembered
first breath
once again
fluttered

Dried leaves

pop stop across retina
awareness
flying
returning
waiting
