Urban thaw

Birdsong staccato fills morning’s blue-lit glow
trills weaving in and out
through rippling-drip-trickling

These spring-melt days turn the cityworld
to lakes and streams
gardens to muddy continents
adrift
(nature dismantles order)
snow-heaped mountains shrink and recede
gathering grit into their folds

This new season tilts sunward
warming, the light golden again

We wade through light and water

  1. You make the spring-melt days sound beautiful! The sounds, especially in the first stanza, are wonderful. I love these lines:
    “(nature dismantles order)”
    “gathering grit into their folds”
    “We wade through light and water”
    This just may be one of my favorites of yours.
