Springtide 

Standard

there’s a fragrance that rises

from the decadence of spring

adorned by a theme

of life and revival

a time that dwindles off

the murk of winter

flowers germinate

and the trees redress

greens, lavendar and pink

a gorgeous, pastel painting

the air becomes diaphanous

and the sun comes out to play

revving the zest in spirits

that froze over last season

children’s laughter ring louder

and breezes sing songs of hope

as energies amplify

from the essence of vigor beings

temperatures begin to ascend

in gradual increments

preparing us

for the entrance of summer

but until then,

I’ll revel in this space

of reincarnation

and slow breaths

of the present moment.

Thinking of you..

Standard

I think of you
on nights like this
when the sky is still
and the air is moist

I feel this warmth
slather slowly on me
like sticky summer days
til skins peel apart

rich dew manifests
on these long humid nights
quenching green meadows
that baptized our souls

diffused in its vastness
osmotic spirits blend
authentic as Spring
promising new life

with pause for poise
and lungs expanded
breaths rebirth
a zephyr of peace..

on nights like this,
I think of you
