with me, to that place
of beginnings

where once again, we can
trust and blossom

in answer

voices of sandhills
whirl overhead, flying north
as the paths clear

that seemed like
mountains, crumble

giving way
to the flow of time

its been frozen,
clouded over

but yesterday you surfaced

light shining
in your eyes

the cold ways

of sheltering nests

clouds expand, saturated

late winter’s
thaw, trickling
into crevices,

worn smooth,

the first tender shoots.

and buds refused to bloom?

What if

the tide stayed out, ignoring
the moon’s insistent call?

What if

birds no longer migrated
or winds changed course?

Would we want to stay? Could we?
