Wider and Wider

a single maple leaf
that never let go
mid-winter

    the impatience
    of forsythia




wider and wider
around the sequoia
trillium

     beneath the leaf litter
    beneath the snow, spring waits




dawn on the river
the leafless beauty
of sycamores


    in splotches of sunlight
    spring returns




Peter Newton (Massachusetts, USA)
Kathe L. Palka (New Jersey, USA)


Composed via email over the winter of 2013/14.
