Blossom Moon

Author: • May 21, 2018 • Poems

I wake in the same skin

wrapped in a new millennium,

bursting seams with decisions

like tight catkins opening

at the first hint of spring warmth.

 

Our separate paths move closer

in a desire to remove

the cluttering dead wood of our life.

We take small steps up and away

from office-tight roots,

voices that block out the light.

 

Turning over the earth,

to seek out the perfect green seed

waking beneath unexplored plots.

You steady me when others believe

I should only work familiar ground.

 

I scatter confetti of applications

to the four winds,

a bud tensed at the cusp of spring.

 

Taking a chance at falling,

petal-perfect.
