Welcome to Spring

 

Magnolias

Time is now magnolia,

wax candles light trees

bring stark beauty

for first days of opening.

Bold blossoms poise while leaves begin.

The stone wall is lit by worship.

 

It is morning.

Three swans fly over the estuary

their necks outstretched.

They hold formation

just above the water.

 

This is spring’s song

three swans in flight

magnolias in bloom.
