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)
