spring and all


to be a raindrop on a naked limb


                              a man


                a woman



                        and then



(first publication)

Or a petal on a wet, black bough.

Right. In for a penny, in for a pound...

Well, it's simplistic beauty and still beyond me. I am lost, as so often I find myself...but still enjoying the view as dew.

I think it’s beyond me, too. Frankly, I think I might have struck out with this poem. Maybe it sounds better than it means. I don’t know. Still, it’s a quaint little meeting place, and I’m grateful for that.

Adew!
