Six Takes on ‘Spring’


It still hurts too much
remembering that last spring—
all-day divorce court.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
almost every night
throughout the long, languid spring—
cricket serenade
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
I wish we were back
in the cold days before spring,
warming each other.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
one brimming moment
seven years ago this spring—
she still remembers
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
a serpentine path
leading her down to the spring—
there she slakes her thirst
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
It is a strange dance,
this pas de deux, with winter
twirling fragile spring.
