night creatures. branch to branch. a silent conversation. in the Spring night. new leaves. a new wind. warm. gentle. sweeping away the silence. a whisper of the color. yet to come. on each maple twig. I exhale. pause. inhaling. this first taste. of Spring. among oak trees. and night creatures.
this gentle Spring wind
among the trees

from our past mistakes . . .

to be found even in

among the blossoms,
an owl’s shadow
where I need to be …
the songs of owls
on barren trees
deep in the night
I follow our shadows
on frameless walls
