Flow — A Poem

“Ripening Maple” — C.Birde, 5/17

Swim

through the maple’s

slip-edged,

ripening leaves

and emerge –

balanced, bobbing,

pollen-flocked –

on the cool air’s

shoals.

Tread –

in full embrace –

softened, spreading

light.

Linger in the greening.

And with abandon,

dive

into burgeoning

May.

— C.Birde, 5/17

    • Thank you, Belinda 🙂 The red maple grows in our front yard — my Dad gave it to me as a sapling, the offspring of the red maple that grows in my parents’ front yard 🙂
