trapped in the wind

burrow deeply within
emerge from the past

and dreams overcast”
Leaves fall,
branches reach for the sky
Winter clouds gather,
snow starts to fly

Furloughed—the seeds march distant and free

The season long,
its transients flee
Vision impaired,
past futures to fade

a choice to be made

The first Nightingale sings,
its call from beyond
A feeling unfreezes,
old words to a song

The hills begin thawing,
new tracks to reveal Salvation once promised,
no longer concealed
Winds from the west,
bring rebirth and enthrall
The sun melting lies,
—and winter recalled

(Villanova Pennsylvania: May, 2017)
