Time of Soft Trees

Post 30


Now is the time of soft trees, 
the beginning, when hints of pink, green and yellow tint the taupes and blues of winter.

So, below, a poem about life. Very short. Very slight. 
And fit for an Equinox, - at least half bright.


Deep in the underhush 
   Dig low, pile high;
Warm as the underbrush
   Deep as the sky


Warm as the underbrush,
   Grasses and sedge,
Berries and daisies
   Fringe a low ledge.


A stream at the edge
Moves through the dew,
The deeper the life
The stronger the clue.

Happy Spring
