Spring Haiku

without knowing why
I reach up to touch a new
unfurling leaf


spring thaw —
an old friend reaches
for the phone

(A special "thank you" to Wendy,
who helps keep me going.
I also tried to write about
the particularity of the green of new leaves,
but I couldn't quite get it.
Perhaps I should have taken some time outside
with my camera today.)
