Wellspring


Wellspring of life, the earth's fuse
sputters into a fraying of leaves,
oak, birch, maple, juniper, pine,
strung out like Roman candles

an explosion of light

And suddenly the wind stirs this
palette of foliage into the landscape's
dream: a verdant collage,
green, orange, green, brown, yellow, green.

  2. Lovely imagery Sam.
    My favorite parts:

    "...the earth's fuse
    sputters into a fraying of leaves....
    green, orange, green, brown, yellow, green"

    Love that I live somewhere I get to see this happen year after year. Thanks for giving it to me today.
