slow dance

 


the grating shrills, honks 

of geese & gulls

do not bother me


the mercurial weather

of sudden rain & bright sun

do not despair me


i can wait

for marvel of fresh daffodils

& lazy unfurling 


of cherry

blooms, time of slow

spring dance

  1. Spring is upon as well... I think the cherry blossoms are out, and last weekend I went looking for geese... so I am with you a lot in this dance.

  4. A beautiful breath of spring air, Grace! I’ve heard geese and gulls recently, flying overhead – a friendly sound – I quite love the mercurial nature of spring weather, and you are so right about the ‘lazy unfurling of cherry blooms’; ours are definitely keeping us waiting.

  5. Here in Slovenia spring also seems slow in coming. The first blossoms were killed off by snow and hail, but after rain the earth is blooming again.

  10. This is a juxtaposition between noise and quiet, sudden and lazy — like spring itself.
