secondary storm
the wind blows down
raindrops from the trees

back to cold again
the bird on the lilac
sits fully fluffed

rain after the rain
the beginning of puddles
and the end of thirst

above and below
where his elbow pads go
spring lacrosse tan

to wait until the sun rose
before it let go?

waiting patiently
with their their perfect posture
three tulips

my friend’s black iris
oh so close to blooming
all that’s left, now

a forest clearing
overflowing with sunlight
when you say my name

the beginnings of love,
unstoppable heat

to the sky’s high country
these sun-stealing clouds!
