Earth Song

 


The world is still now.
I wait in that deceptive silence
that may or may not precede the muse.

The world is still
with that hushed awareness
of unconquerable life
waiting to cover the naked bones of winter
with voluptuous reproduction.

Winter hangs trembling
from the tip of a greening elm;
the fleeting rainbow of ice and snow
captured in the purity of a raindrop.

The rich, black trunks make their last stand
before the misty green onslaught;
standing tall and solemn
amid the flamboyant courtship of spring,
lest they be caught dancing unawares.

My hands ache for a brush.
But who can capture this magic”
What artist can take the very breath of God
and lay it on canvas?
