incredulity (or spring miracles)

above me those heavy limbs of blossoms
gently tickle a sky of blue –
i am watching a leaf form, it’s beginning ache
and tenuous, tenacious first push off the branch

to feed off the sun, to feel a cool breeze,
oh that same breath
bringing down petals in such expressive state
as we both shake heads in incredulity.


  1. nice…spring leaves me breathless each year anew…and each year i think i should be used to it now..but it's def. magic that happens…great capture..and hope you had a lovely time in new zealand…def. on my places to visit list..smiles

  2. thank you all very much!! I love spring so much, and it was especially amazing to me this year since I arrived home from fall in New Zealand to a world in complete bloom….

    @Claudia, i can send you my NZ trip notes if you'd like 🙂
