Miles from here

weave their
golden branches
around the moon —
catching dreams
as they fall into
the tender embrace
of catkins.

Raindrops tumble
like liquid mallets —
across outstretched fronds —
playing xylophone ferns.

Nudging its
way through
the topsoil —
a worm on the
coattails of
a daffodil.

I’m as carried away
as a leaf in the breeze —
I’m gone with the wind
& miles from here.

‘V’ formation in the sky —
geese return like a boomerang —
as the seasons change.

a meditative pose
the tree centers itself
on uneven ground.

Seesaws in the sky —
tilting on invisible fulcrums —
sparrows at play.

Bopping its boughs
to the beat of the wind
Ponderosa on air drums.

  2. Beautiful. I smell a hint of Spring in your poem.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! Yes, the days are growing longer like the green grass, strands of sunlight weaving their way into Primavera’s tapestry. Have a wonderful day, Sherry!
      Tyler 🙂
