Worry about the Trees 4/19/20202

Con/Jur/d

 

Started yesterday

what had been finished

the day before when 

new-buds encased and

enfolded by ice while

at the trunk base

grass-growth paused

by white snow

today a melted

sun blanched

canvas

 

‘How the words

sound together 

on a clean-blank

page

 

is different’

 

how the worry about

trees and how they’ll do

after an ill-timed Spring

a story almost as silly

as the roar of digital

voices who don’t see

everything everyone

resides in experiment

in exegesis in exaltation

always in the middle

dreaming of beginning

and ends.

It was cold overnight with another frost advisory for tonight here in the Ocean State. Early Saturday morning there was some snow, and it was weird hearing birdsong at 4&5 am. The animals must get confused.

Nature is resilient.

Perhaps mankind is, too.

Hard to think snow on this beautiful spring day.  Of course for me, snow is a novelty anytime of the year.   But I would think seeing the green grass at the base of the tree, peeking up out of the snow would just make one happy.  The buds start sprouting and the sleeping tree wakes up.  Your vision so different from mine.
