February – week 1

a pocket of sunshine

in this grey day —

first snowdrops

~

first milk…

folding back the red silk sheet

of sunrise,

in the last drops of moonlight,

the blue-white curve of her breast

~

spring is so near

and yet so far…

the wind

asks the leaves

to dance with her

~

on the boughs

where sycamore seeds

hung their wings

new buds at first light…

how she reminds me of you

~

is there anything

stronger than love?

in the harsh wind and rain

a collared dove

waits for her lover’s return

~

February wind

all the leaves

take flight again

~

dove on the bough

pushed by the rain-strewn wind…

hair fanned gold

swinging on the garden seat,

a memory of summer

~
